CVNE is one of the most important wine producers of Spain, on account of its illustrious history and its omnipresence in the contemporary Spanish wine scene. Founded by the Real de Asua brothers in 1879, it remains family-owned and family-run, with the latest generation committed more than ever to making great wine in meaningful quantities. Today it still sits on its original site in the wine district, Barrio de la Estación, in Haro, Rioja Alta.

The Haro winery comprises a collection of structures and cellars, most dating from the 19th century, arranged around a central patio. Above the cellars are the winemaking, bottling, and shipping facilities, conserved to this day.

With the time, a serial number of structures have been built, which reflect the vinicole history of the winery. The Eiffel ‘s Cellar, designed by the architecture practice of the legendary Alexandre – Gustave Eiffel; El Carmen the first vinification plant made out of epoxy lined concrete, in Spain and El Pilar, the first vinification plant to use the gravity to transport the grapes and must in our country.

At Cune, the winemaking process continues with the same dedication and care as it started in the company’s early days. And care is taken from start to finish, from the grape on the vine to the wine in its bottle.

Tasting Notes
Attractive strawberry red colour with bluish hints on the meniscus. Intense red fruit aromas as strawberry, redcurrant and raspberry. Sweet hints that reminds to the candies bringing us back to the childhood. Naturally, red liquorice is clearly present in its aroma. All together invites us to taste it, and here it is where we find new world of sensations because through our palate it gives a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity which provides the freshness even in the after tasting. The end is so nice that comes perfect to pair with appetizers, pasta, vegetables, blue fish and light meats. Ideal temperature 8-10 C.
Winemaker Notes
We harvested our carefully selected Tempranillo grapes at optimum ripeness to achieve a high level of aromatic extraction and a good concentration. The grapes are kept in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to prevent the start of fermentation. The juice is removed from the solids after around 24 to 48 hours, once we have determined that the colour is the pink we require. The fermentation is then carried out without the presence of seeds or skins at a controlled temperature of 16 to 18 C for around 8 days to obtain the required fruit levels in the wine.
