Make like a Spaniard, let go of your worries and lose yourself in this now annual celebration of the best of Spanish wine and cuisine right on your doorstep. Spend a summer afternoon or evening strolling in the sunshine, visit four restaurants and enjoy a selection of authentic Spanish tapas created to complement the well balanced, tasty and round, full flavours associated with Campo Viejo Reserva. Hosts guide guests along the route from restaurant to restaurant inspiring them with local city and Spanish anecdotes and share their expertise and insights into the unique characteristics of Campo Viejo wines.
This year sees an extra splash of colour brought to the streets of Dublin as Campo Viejo once again teams up with renowned urban artists Okuda and Remed to create a vibrant outdoor Tapas Trail mural in the heart of the Creative Quarter. Remed’s ability to make rhymes with colours, shapes and sounds to express emotions is a beautiful complement to Okuda’s view that the meaning of life gives colour to his works. This continues Campo Viejo’s love and association with urban art, the highlight of which is a strikingly colourful installation in the heart of its winery in Rioja created by Okuda and Remed and inspired by the expressiveness of Campo Viejo.
Speaking about the Tapas Trail, Avril Gilligan, Brand Manager of Campo Viejo, said: “We’re thrilled that it’s that time of the year again, warmer weather and the return of the Campo Viejo Tapas Trail to the streets of Dublin, Cork and Galway. What’s better than spending some time exploring four different restaurants, being treated to tasty tapas, and all complimented by a glass of Campo Viejo Reserva. It’s a wonderful chance to experience the colour and vibrancy of Spanish culture in some of these city’s best restaurants.”
