The Cangas Protected Designation of Origin and its Wineries
The oenological and viticultural tradition of the southwestern region of Asturias dates back to the Middle Ages, around the 9th century, with the emergence of the first monasteries that took advantage of the available soils for the cultivation of the vine in an area that had sheltered terraces mountainous masses, suitable for receiving abundant solar radiation. The bonanza of the climate of the region meant that the high mountain vineyards will be concentrated in this part of Asturias, coinciding with the deep valleys of the Navia and Narcea rivers, and thus the culture of wine – which had as one of its main references the Monastery of Corias – reached our days, acquiring in the last decades this tradition strength and wine brand in the panorama of wine in Spain. The Wines and the wineries with their tastings and visits, the Harvest Festival – declared of Tourist Interest -, the Wine Museum in Santiso, etc. they are tangible heritage of the wine culture in Asturias.
Antón Chicote Wineries
Antonio Álvarez is the son, grandson and great-grandson of a winegrower. The tradition of caring for vineyards is so old in the family that the time of origin is unknown. Antonio has taken care of the old vineyards of his father, has been renovating them, has been acquiring new plots and has built a small winery, in a privileged area of Cangas del Narcea called La Galiana. Antonio Álvarez guides the work in the vineyards and in the winery and understands that project in which his wines and his life are inseparable. His friendly, open and enterprising character makes his wine very well known and that visits to his winery are not only a tourist visit, but also an opportunity to learn about the culture and tradition of Cangas viticulture.

Carrascal, 7. Cangas del Narcea 33800 Asturias
Winery located in the Principality of Asturias, specifically in Cangas del Narcea. We have been collaborating for 30 years to the recovery of the native varieties of the area such as: the Albarín blanco y Negro, Mencía, Moscatel de grain menudo or Verdejo Negro … My family has also been cultivating these lands and making wine since 1556, date that the historical documents that narrate this fact are dated.The varieties that we use are unique in the world since they are adapted to our land. These varieties disappeared at the beginning of the 20th century due to mining and were recovered by an investigation carried out by the CSIC and led by one of the world’s greatest experts in grapevine and genetics, Maria del Carmen Martinez, who is part of our family.
Since 2014, the date on which the winery was professionalized and the first vintage was launched, we have managed to obtain 13 international awards in the most prestigious international competitions, both for our white wine and for our rosé wine. These contests are located in Belgium, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong or Italy… and are the benchmark contests worldwide.
