Good acidity and persistence. Long and complex aftertaste due to long ageing in the bottle.

The Story

During the 19th Century, CVNE produced in Rioja consistent quantities of Champagne. Yes, you read that right, Spanish Champagne. The phyloxera bug had ravaged Champagne's vineyards, and CVNE did its part to quench the thirst for fine sparkling wine with its own bubbles. Over time, CVNE focused on still wines, building a lasting reputation on great reds and whites. But the desire to make fine bubbles was always there, encouraging us to make CVNE Cava Brut, a current take on a centuries-old tradition.

About Cune

Brand Story

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. Above the cellars are the winemaking, bottling, and shipping facilities, conserved to this day. The winemaking process continues with the same dedication and care as it started in the company’s early days.
