Campo Viejo launches its first certified organic wine on the Quebec market: Campo Viejo Ecológico

MONTREAL, QC, October 12, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Campo Viejo, the world’s best-selling brand from the Spanish region of Rioja1is proud to unveil its very first sustainable wine brand, Campo Viejo Ecological. This unique wine is produced according to the standards of organic certification, applying a work ethic that goes hand in hand with the preservation of biodiversity and improved packaging. Campo Viejo Ecológico is now available for $18.05 in SAQ stores across Quebec for a limited time.

Campo Viejo Ecológico is an accessible, lively and fragrant wine that benefits from two of the best classic Rioja grape varieties: Tempranillo (64%) and Garnacha (36%). Its nose is flooded with silky red fruits typical of Tempranillo (cherry, plum, blackberry and blueberry), enhanced with notes of strawberry and raspberry and delicate herbaceous notes brought by the Garnacha. “It has a very fragrant flavor, with good structure and a refreshing and fruity finish. It is a vibrant and aromatic wine, fragrant and unctuous. A refreshing wine capable of satisfying any type of public”, adds Elena Adell, Campo Viejo Head winemaker.

Expressive and rich in Tempranillo notes, it goes perfectly with pasta, poultry, light fresh cheeses or grilled vegetables.

The grapes used to make Campo Viejo Ecológico come from a certified organic vineyard on a property located in Alfaro, in the Rioja Oriental region of Spain. On their arrival at the cellar, they are de-stemmed, lightly crushed then transported by gravity in stainless steel vats for fermentation at a controlled temperature of around 25ohC. During fermentation, regular pumping over allows color and aromas to be extracted. Throughout the process, no animal products are used in any way, making Campo Viejo Ecológico suitable for vegan consumers.

Holistic approach to sustainability

With an updated and minimalist design, Campo Viejo Ecológico has completely changed the way its bottles and labels are produced and manufactured. This means they are now lighter and made with 75% recycled glass – reducing carbon emissions by 30% – with a new wrap-around paper capsule. The tags are made with FSC-certified recycled paper, removing any foil from its design which offers a minimalist take on its iconic brand. But the effort to have a positive impact on the planet goes even further by planting a tree for every case of wine sold. Campo Viejo also chooses local suppliers who contribute to reducing the environmental impact of shipping. By buying French oak directly from sustainable forests and producing its own barrels in Spain, Campo Viejo succeeded in reducing its freight footprint by up to 70%.

Campo Viejoa lasting brand

It was the first to receive some of the most notable ISO certifications (ISO 14064 for carbon footprint and ISO 50001 for energy efficiency), as well as Wineries certification for Climate Protection, which has resulted in pioneering successes that are clearly evident in water and waste management, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction. These achievements have been widely recognized over the past two decades. A commitment to preserving biodiversity is the philosophy behind the design and production of Campo Viejo Ecológico.
