Pernod Ricard has invested £1.5 million in an advertising campaign for Rioja brand Campo Viejo.


promotion sees the return of the Picasso-esque character Pablo, who will feature in a series of print ads that will appear in national newspapers and consumer magazines.

Pernod Ricard wine development director Adrian Atkinson said: "Campo Viejo continues to drive the growth of both the Rioja and Spanish wine categories.
