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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium intensity of maroon colour. In nose, we can find aromas of wild fruits, liquorice together with vanillas, toffees and cocoa from the American oak barrels. Soft entrance in mouth with rounded tanins and a slightly acidic end which leads to a long and fruity aftertaste.
Production Notes
The alcoholic fermentation of the grapes from our vineyards in Rioja Alta takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in tanks and then the wine is aged in American oak barrels for one year. During this time, the wine acquires the aromatic balance, finesse and expression that characterizes it.
Winemaker Notes
The first wine of this winery was named after its initials. At the beginning a red ‘clarete’ wine was made as a fine wine in the style of the Bordeaux “Claret” produced by the great chateaux’s of the Medoc. This wine, formerly known as ‘Tercer Año’ or ‘3rd year’, is today called ‘Crianza’.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is easy to drink, fresh and perfect for pairing with every type of dishes of the Mediterranean diet.
Other Notes
Tempranillo: 85% Garnacha Tinta and Mazuelo: 15%.
