Background

History

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa, their aim was to capitalise on the flourishing new trade in wine. C.V.N.E. is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region.

Regional info

This wine is produced from grapes harvested in vineyards over 20 years old in the area around Villalba and Haro in Rioja Alta, bush pruned, with low yields, and are picked by hand. Only the healthiest and ripest grapes are selected, and following destalking the grapes are cold macerated prior to a cool fermentation.
