The company was established in 1879 by brothers Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa. Positioned right next to the rail station, the company perfectly positioned to benefit from the flourishing wine trade, transporting wines by train up to the port of Bilbao. The original winery in Haro, Rioja Alta, is still used today and is home to the company’s headquarters. Today there are two additional main wineries: Viña Real and Contino in Rioja Alavesa. Like most producers in Rioja, they work with many growers as well as their own vineyards, with the latter representing half of their production.
CVNE, or Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (the Northern Spanish Wine Company), is one of Rioja’s leading names. With its various brands – Cune, Viña Real, Contino and Imperial – CVNE produces both large volumes and high quality, with its Imperial Gran Reserva one of the region’s finest wines.
