About C.V.N.E

The Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, or C.V.N.E., was founded in 1879 by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa.

The brothers came from Bilbao, where the family owned a shipping company. Eusebio moved to the drier climate of Haro, La Rioja, for health reasons. His move coincided with the phylloxera crisis in France; the brothers spotted an opportunity and lept into the wine business. In later years, the family sealed its commitment to producing wine by selling its ships to the British Royal Navy, as it prepared for the Great War.

To this day, C.V.N.E. remains firmly in the hands of the founding family, and is considered one of Rioja’s first growths. “Real de Asúa” was born as a tribute to its founders, the Real de Asúa brothers, and to the cities of Bilbao and Haro that saw them and the Company flourish.
