Bodegas Campillo, opened in 1990, was the vision of Grupo Faustino family patriarch, Julio Faustino Martinez, realizing his two great passions of art and wine. The winery is located just outside of the medieval village of LaGuardia, surrounded by a 140-acre estate vineyard that spans 650-800 meters above sea level along the base of the Sierra de Cantebria. Campillo marks a departure from traditional winemaking bounds, and is dedicated to a modern expression of Rioja Alavesa, namely high-elevation viticulture, clonal trials, new blends (red and white) and French oak for aging as well as barrel fermentation. Deeply connected to the arts, the architecture of Bodegas Campillo was considered an ‘architectural vanguard’ when it first opened in 1990 and to this day the winery has a long-standing sponsorship project with the Guggenheim Bilbao.
