Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico (CVA) was founded in 2002 with the purpose of uniting the winemaking heritage of Alberto Orte and Patrick Mata's families. Both of their families have been producing wine, independently, throughout Spain since the late 1800s. CVA currently produces wines in 18 different appellations within the Iberian Peninsula. The goal of CVA is to handcraft "elaborar" wines that express the identity of the place where they come from. Throughout the years, CVA has been searching for great vineyard-sites which produce consistently superior wines compared to neighboring vineyards. Identifying indigenous varieties from old vines in high elevation vineyards tended in low yielding balanced soil is our primary compass in selecting the raw material we use to handcraft our fine wines.
