The Viña Real brand was created in 1960 by Cvne, the founding winery of the group which also includes Viñedos del Contino. Although the first wines to be released onto the market and made with Viña Real grapes (in the Elciego area and close to the old royal road, the Camino Real, hence the name) date back to 1920.
Today, looking to over a 100 years of Cvne experience, the new Viña Real winery offers modern-style wines that are well prepared for a long life, and thus combines tradition and innovation. This innovation extends to both the production and ageing processes and also the architecture: the Viña Real installations are housed in a remarkable building, the work of the French architect Philippe Mazieres, shaped like a gigantic wooden vat made of red cedar wood from Canada. It is visible on the road between Logroño and Laguardia, situated on top of a hill known as the Cerro de la Mesa.
