A museum about wine and its tradition in Asturias

Opened in August 2007, Pesoz Ethnological Museum is devoted to wine and the traditional way of making it in this borough. The collection consists of exhibits donated or loaned by vineyard owners and wine producers in the borough, and of a small number of exhibits acquired by the town council itself. The donated and purchased exhibits are municipally owned.

Pesoz, like the boroughs of Allande, Cangas del Narcea, Degaña, Grandas, Ibias and Illano, as well as some parishes in Tineo, comes under the Protected Geographical Indication Vino de la Tierra de Cangas (·Land of Cangas Wine·).

The museum is divided into three parts:

  • VISITOR RECEPTION,where, in addition to providing information on the borough of Pesoz via panels and a map with all its resources and amenities, there is also an introduction to wine, which is further developed in the INTERPRETATION HALL. Tourist information for Pesoz is also provided in the Reception Hall.
  • The INTERPRETATION HALL: where the traditional way of harvesting vines in Pesoz is disclosed via explanatory panels, a video, an interactive panel and exhibits in showcases. The panels are divided into two groups: "Cultivating Vines" and "Winemaking". The method of distillation and grape varieties are also explained in this hall.
  • WINE CELLAR HALL:reproducing a traditional Pesoz wine cellar, with all the necessary utensils to make wine when the grapes reach the cellar. Tasting of wine made in Pesoz.
