The more southerly location of Cangas del Narcea bordering with Leon and Galicia make the terrain ideal for the production of wine and is still one of their main industries. Also, it is the only winemaking region in Asturias. The beautiful landscapes are full of grapevines that produce young light wines with a big personality that have been awarded with protected geographical status and stamped with the origin denomination “Vino de Calidad de Cangas” (Quality Wine from the land of Cangas) or Cangas Wine. These wines are highly regarded and go perfectly with the region’s gastronomy.
«Cangas wine has received many awards throughout history and it now enjoys a moment of splendor, with a professionalisation and a care of the vines that was not applied in the same way for decades, when homemade and local consumption prevailed. Behind, the times in which six thousand hectares in the area were counted remain, today many less, but ahead, a path full of opportunities and successes can be glimpsed.
Why? Because it has a good trump card in its hand, since it has some varied native grapes, like the Albarín white grape (not to be confused with Albariño because its characteristics are very different) and the Carrasquín reds, black Albarín and black Verdejo. If to this we add the changes that the climate is experiencing, since it is sunny in itself in these councils, the grape obtains an ideal level of natural ripening». Turismo Asturias
