This month food and wine enthusiasts are in for a treat as Campo Viejo has joined forces with five of Dublin’s top Tapas restaurants to create the first ever Campo Viejo Tapas Trail. A month long celebration of the best of Spanish food and wine, participants will have the opportunity to join the gastronomic tapas trail through Dublin city centre and experience the delights of tapas style dining right on their doorstep.

To celebrate the launch of this food fiesta Campo Viejo hosted an evening of Spanish style tapas and wine at Odessa. Chef Kevin Dundon cooked up a range of delicious tapas specially developed for Campo Viejo by the Martin Berastegui School in Northern Spain.

Each Wednesday and Saturday throughout the month of June the Campo Viejo Tapas Trail will visit five top tapas venues around Dublin: Bar Pintxo, The Port House, Salamanca Dame Street, Salamanca St Andrews Street and Havana Tapas Bar.
