Type
Festival of touristic interest in the Principality of Asturias
Dates
October
The only wine of Asturias

The Fiesta of the Wine Harvest is unique in Asturias, among other reasons because Cangas del Narcea is the only wine producing area in the Principality, with a tradition which goes back to the Middle Ages and with a type of mountain vineyard which make wine production here a truly heroic activity.

Each year, this fiesta coincides with the long weekend of the Virgen del Pilar, in the first two weeks in October and there are many activities which are carried out in relation to the wine harvest. Besides the incessant activity and the atmosphere in the vineyards, Cangas holds an artisanal fair and market with all kinds of products of the land, as well as wine tasting, guided visits to the Wine Museum, gastronomy linked to the world of wine, etc. Numerous brotherhoods arrange to meet in Cangas del Narcea and have their own parade accompanied by the local music band.

There are four days of genuine devotion to the culture of the Quality Wine of Cangas, where you can get to know everything about this activity which is millenary in the west of Asturias, and which becomes more multitudinous year by year.
