Guide Spain


Written by Piero Pardini


The winery of northern Spain (C.V.N.E./ Compañia Vinícola del Norte de España), was born in 1879 when the Real de Asúa brothers arrived in Haro, a Spanish municipality located in the Autonomous Community of La Rioja.
After more than a century, the winery is still owned by the same family that, from generation to generation, produces quality wines exported to over ninety countries.
Today, the group owns seven wineries in the main wine regions of Spain. Each vineyard produces quality wines that express the soul of each individual region CVNE in its 140 years of history has been able to evolve, making use of modern technologies, respecting the environment, without, however, renouncing to make its history and tradition its distinctive mark.
“The Bela label is a facsimile of a CVNE label from 1910. The stars represent the sons of CVNE’s founder, Eusebio Real de Asúa. Each star represents one of the children, Sofía, Áurea and Ramón. Sofia was known as “Bela”.
