Bela

View Winery Website

Bela is a homage to the founders of CVNE expressed through an exceptional winery and vineyards. All this makes it a unique place for the production and ageing of the most special Ribera del Duero wines.

Bela was founded in 2017 in Villalba de Duero, when CVNE embarked on a new venture in Ribera del Duero, focusing on estate vineyards located in several villages within the region.

The result is a state-of-the-art winery, boasting a beautiful wood and glass design, perched majestically among the plains of the Ribera del Duero region. Immense wooden pillars frame the more than 6,000-m² winery, which features an underground 10,000-barrel capacity cellar, fermentation area, and tasting room. Visitors are welcomed at the entrance by a terrace and a living green roof. The winery is surrounded by 74 hectares of vineyards.

This is a fresh expression of the CVNE model, based on quality, artisanal and traditional winemaking methods, and a unique setting for wine tourism situated in the middle of the Ribera del Duero wine region.

This winery is a homage to the ancestors of the CVNE family. The winery was named in honour of Sofia, daughter of Eusebio Real de Asúa, co-founder of the winery in 1879, and in turn great-grandmother of the current managers. She was known in family circles as Bela. In fact, the three stars adorning the wine labels stand for Bela and her siblings, Áurea Minerva and Ramón.
