Now an annual celebration of the best of Spanish cuisine and wine, guests on the trail discover ‘tapeo’, the art of enjoying tapas with friends and family at four of the very best tapas restaurants each city has to offer. Spend a summer afternoon or evening strolling in the sunshine, sharing 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 inspiring them with local city and Spanish anecdotes and sharing their expertise and insights into the unique characteristics of Campo Viejo wines.
The expressive and vibrant Spanish way of life is woven into the trail through colourful art installations by renowned Campo Viejo urban artists Okuda and Remed, on display in each of the participating restaurants. New for this year is a giant outdoor mural created especially for the Tapas Trail by Okuda in the heart of Dublin’s creative quarter at Busyfeet & Coco Café, South William St. 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 inspired by the expressiveness of Campo Viejo.
Speaking about the Tapas Trail, Avril Gilligan, Brand Manager of Campo Viejo, said: “We’re thrilled to have the Campo Viejo Tapas Trail return to Dublin and Cork this summer and are looking forward to extending the trail to the streets of Galway for the very first time. It has become a hugely anticipated event and is a great way to experience Spanish culture and the vibrancy of Campo Viejo in some of these city’s best restaurants. We’re also delighted that urban artist Okuda is bringing his talents from Spain to Dublin to create an outdoor mural in the heart of the city centre for all to enjoy.”
