In 1879, when Rioja was just embarking on an incredible boom owing to the phylloxera blight in the Bordeaux region, two brothers, Real de Asúa and Isidro Corcuera, founded a winery with the long name “Compañia Vinícola del Norte de España”. Soon, the winery was known simply as “CVNE”, or “Cune”. The basis for its legendary reputation dates back to the 1920s, when it launched the “Imperial” wine.
The extensive CVNE cellars are located in the famous station neighbourhood of Haro, where the Rioja success story began. This is where wines are produced that perfectly combine the traditional elegance of Rioja with contemporary fruity richness. In addition to the famous Imperial, which is available as a Reserva and Gran Reserva, the “Cune” and “Viñedos del Contino” ranges are also a guarantee of high-quality Riojas.
