Campo Viejo Wine Sensory Experience

In 2014, Campo Viejo together with Charles Spence, professor of experimental psychology at Oxford University, ran the world’s largest multi-sensory experience during a Campo Viejo event in London to find out how color and sound affect the flavors in wines: 3,000 people were given a glass of wine to taste while being exposed to changes in light and sound.

“We were astonished to see that the color and sound have such a profound effect on the taste of wine,” said Spence. “We knew an effect was likely, but the results went far beyond what we were hoping for.”

This became known as the Campo Viejo Color Lab.

Campo Viejo believes vibrant cultures add color to life.  We aim to inspire people to live a life more colorful by embracing the expressiveness, generosity, authenticity and vibrancy of modern-day Spain. Campo Viejo has been leading Rioja winemaking innovation, offering expressive and vibrant fruit-forward wines to the wine lovers around the world.
