For over 50 years, Campo Viejo has been a bold ambassador for the Rioja region, pioneering how Rioja wines are made, bottled, aged and set free on the world. Founded in 1959, the name Campo Viejo translates as ?Field of the Veterans?, reflecting a vineyard that dates back to Roman times?but wine that is all modern. The first vintage was released in 1961 and it soon expanded to national distribution, then internationally in 1980. In 2001, a new Campo Viejo winery opened, with such innovations as an underground facility, gravity-fed grapes in high volumes, and a unique and benchmark laboratory. Today Campo Viejo is the number one Rioja in the world. In 2012 Campo Viejo became the first carbon neutral winery in the world.
