C.V.N.E. - Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España - The Northern Spanish Wine Company - was established in March 1879 in the historic wine town of Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa, their aim was to capitalize on the flourishing new trade in wine. C.V.N.E. is still controlled by the direct descendants of the founding family, now in its fifth generation.
