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 Reserva is made exclusively from our own grapes grown in Haro. The soils are calcareous and iron rich clay, the climate is continental with a marked Atlantic influence and the vineyards are located above 500 metres altitude.
