As much history as is held in each of its bottles


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.


Real de Asúa cellar, a winery inside another winery

The Real de Asua cellar is an independent winery inside the original historic quarters of Cune. This cellar allows for a fully traditional winemaking process subject to the strictest quality controls.


The greater wines of the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, namely, Real de Asúa and Imperial, are made in this cellar.
