Millennial viticultural history

Although the humidity we have in the Cantabrian Sea is not conducive to wine harvests, in Cangas del Narcea there is a unique microclimate, abounding a vineyard full of native varieties. Its wines have a protected designation of origin. The result is an unmistakable wine: floral and fruity aromas typical of the grape varieties; broths with a clean, bright and transparent appearance.

This museum opened its remodeled doors in July 2010, with an elliptical design, similar to a basket and integrated into the environment. The museum's permanent exhibition consists of three adjoining buildings that allow the visitor to visit six thematic areas, with the help of new technologies such as audiovisual and manipulative, which contribute to complete an attractive visit for the different. We will leave with a clear idea about: the work of the vineyard, its millennial history and the unique natural characteristics of the area that make this wine a unique product, as well as the different tasks and schedules of both the vineyard and the winery with their multiple peculiarities.

The second space is a shed where you can see an exhibition of large pieces, unique because they are conceived to solve specific needs. You can also see a plantation and traditional trellises with native vine varieties.

· In the third building we find a traditional Asturian winery with an old beam press whose age is close to five hundred years old.
