Cangas Protected Designation of Origin

The southwestern Asturian has a long winemaking tradition that dates back more than a thousand years and whose origin is linked to the Monastery of Corias. Asturian wineries are tiny, artisan, we could say even family. The rugged terrain of the area is quite a surprise for the visitor, who is also usually captivated by the originality of the wines. You can walk through the vineyard, learn about the production process, discover the autochthonous varieties, observe the barrel park and even taste the wines from the different wineries.
