Take a sip of your Campo Viejo and let a top Spanish chef show you how to make a delicious tapas feast.
While you might not be jetting off to Spain for a bit of sun just yet, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t bring a little taste of Spain to your life right now. Just imagine wandering through the gorgeous vineyards of La Rioja, sipping on a crisp and fresh glass of wine and sitting down for a mouthwatering tapas feast…all experienced from the cosy comforts of your own home.
The Secrets of Spain Virtual Experience is the ultimate celebration of Spanish food and wine, combining a virtual Campo Viejo vineyard tour and guided cooking class with an exclusive Campo Viejo wine tasting– with a selection of wines delivered straight to your door. The one hour experience on August 19, will allow guests to immerse themselves in the UK’s favourite Spanish wine for an evening, cook a selection of tapas with acclaimed Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy, and discover delicious food and wine pairings in the process. Tickets cost just £12 and can be purchased via the Fever app.
To kick off your night in, you’ll be led through a guided wine tasting with Campo Viejo’s incredible all-women wine panel. Know absolutely nothing about wine? No worries, this is exactly the wine tasting experience for you. Winemakers Irene Pérez and Elena Suárez will help you demystify the world of wines and learn all the tips and tricks to serving and pairing wines with your meals.
You’ll also discover that it’s not all about the red– Campo Viejo also has a delicious white and rosé within their range. In fact, ticket-holders will be sent one bottle of the Viura-Tempranillo Blanco and one bottle of Rosé for the wine tasting portion of the experience. Salud!
Once you’ve soaked up all that new wine knowledge, you’ll be led through a virtual tour of the Campo Viejo winery nestled deep in the heart of the stunning wine region of La Rioja. There’s no better way to discover the true taste of these delicious wines than to sit back, pour yourself a glass and take in the beauty of their birthplace. You’ll get to learn all about how your wine is made and the sustainable practices that make Campo Viejo so innovative. We love an environmentally friendly vino!
To round off your Secrets of Spain experience you’ll be guided through a live cook-along session hosted by a top class Spanish chef. Love tapas and the gorgeous, carefully spiced flavours of Spanish cuisine? Great! Now’s the time to learn how to make a delicious Spanish meal in your own kitchen.
Omar Allibhoy is the Madrid-born, award-winning chef behind Tapas Revolution and the author of two best-selling cookbooks, Tapas Revolution and Spanish Made Simple. He has been hailed as a ‘crusader for Spanish food and culture’ after championing simple and easy tapas-style cuisine in the UK, and now he wants to share two delicious, easy-to-cook recipes with you.
Omar will guide you through two of his favourite recipes: gambas al ajillo and salmorejo, sharing the inspiration behind the dishes and step-by-step demonstrations of how to make them. You’ll be supplied with a shopping list in advance so that you’re completely prepared to cook-along with the chef. And don’t worry, if you have any questions during the cooking process, you’ll always be able to ask Omar for help. It’s not a competition and it’s all fun and games here, but hopefully you’ll also get to pick up some useful cooking skills along the way!
Once you’ve laid your table with the perfect, home-cooked Spanish spread, Omar will complete the experience by guiding you through the complimentary flavour notes of the food and the Campo Viejo. So that, finally, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour with the perfect glass of wine.
