Dare to Pair with Campo Viejo

This summer Campo Viejo has torn up the rule book and created a re-vamped set of food and wine pairing rules to engage and excite the modern day palette.

Turning the tables on traditional wine pairing (flavour profiling based on the characteristics of food: Bitter, Sweet, Salty, Fat and Acidity), Dare to Pair is about focusing on one sense at a time over four courses. The experience explores the different effects of either sight, sound, smell and touch, on the taste of wine.

Tastebuds are more advanced than they’ve ever been which leaves people searching for the newest and most exciting ingredients and experiences. In partnership with POP Brixton residents and street- tapas pioneers, Donostia and young sommelier, Kate Bedwell, Campo Viejo have created a new food and wine pairing concept: ‘Dare to Pair.’

This focuses on the experience of eating food and works with the senses to create five new rules for people to try out at home:

Smell – Train your brain to recognise aromas
Sight – Change the setting with colour
Taste – Contrast textures
Touch – Chill something usually served at room temperature
Sound – Mix up your melodies whilst you eat.
