Asúa was born out of a desire to capture the essence of Haros’ historic wines. Haro was the birthplace of modern Rioja in the 19th Century, and is home to some of the most important historic wineries, not only in Rioja, but in all of Spain.
The Asúa project pays tribute to the founders of C.V.N.E., founded in Haro in 1879 by the brothers Raimundo and Eusebio Real de Asúa. We wanted to go a step further, with fastidious grape selection in our Haro vineyards and careful ageing in the finest barrels.
Asúa Crianza is made with Tempranillo grapes from our own vineyards in Haro, with soils of calcareous and ferrous clay, located at an altitude of 500 meters and facing south. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
