If you've ever struggled to know the perfect bottle of wine to buy for your friends, that's not just the classic go-to bottle of Prosecco, or have wondered why you're always drawn to a particular kind of tipple and it's not just the price? 

Well, star signs are more than just a personality predictor - they can also tell you what your favorite wine should be, without even tasting a drop.

So if you're the type who starts off every Monday by checking your weekly horoscope, then perhaps matching your choice of wine to your star sign could be the way to narrow it down.

Campo Viejo has partnered with millennial astrology extraordinaire Francesca Oddie to find the perfect wine for your star sign. Are you a Libra? Then a Tempranillo is perfect for you! Looking to please an Aries? Bring them a Malbec!

According to research, 82% of consumers choose their wine based on the appearance of the label, so picture Campo Viejo as Hinge and your perfect wine as the 6ft 4 investment banker who’s ready to settle down...

The popularity of astrology has soared over the last 12 months, with searches for “astrology” hitting a five-year peak in 2020, as millennials crave positivity during the lockdown and turn to the stars for guidance, decision-making, and hope. And it looks like astrology could apply to your wine choices too: can an indecisive Taurus drink a glass of red with a fiery Leo? Probably not.

Astrologer Francesca Oddie, told us, “For centuries we have looked to the stars for guidance on love, friendship and success, so why not let the stars help us pick the perfect tipple? From the best wine to enjoy with a seductive Scorpio, to the perfect pairing for a fiercely independent Aries. The Wines of the Zodiac chart will point wine lovers in the right direction, providing the perfect match to enjoy just in time for spring.”
