The Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE), launched the Viña Real brand in the 1920s becoming one of the pioneering wineries in making crianza wines in oak barrels in this area. A careful balance between tradition and modernity has defined the form and content of Viña Real. 

The grapes of the Rioja Alavesa are at the heart of this winery. The proximity of the vineyards to the old Camino Real inspired its name. And on that same terrain, integrated into a hill called the Cerro de la Mesa, rises a monumental fermenting vat covering nearly 30,000 square meters: the Viña Real building, an iconic 2004 design that succeeds in blending the Rioja orography into its very construction.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Maroon color with nuances of cherry and hugh color layer. Very elegant and intense on nose with spicy notes, aromas of cocoa, vanilla and fine wood in which we appreciate a nice touch of ripe fruit in the aftertaste. A very wide wine in the mouth with a great structure and potential. It is noticed a noble and structured tannin. It is a complex, great wine, long in the mouth. It will evolve very positively in the bottle, having a long life ahead.
