Tierras de Cangas is a young appellation which began in 2001. The region is situated in southern Asturias - an area more known for its cider and cheese than anything else. However, there are a few serious wines sprouting up that benefit from this cool climate region with some of the most bizarre indigenous varietals like Verdejo Negro, Albarin Negro, Carrasquin, etc. It is considered part of Green Spain and climactically, it shares much in common with its neighbor Galicia. However, its slate strewn and mountainous vineyards are probably more similar to The Mosel than anywhere on the Iberian Peninsula.
