Even if there are still almost unknown grape varieties, or at least rare clones or mutations of well-known grape varieties that have not yet reached the light of day, even in the best-known wine-growing regions of Spain, you can find all those varieties that are well worth thinking about, especially in places where viticulture was once important but is now in danger of being forgotten. Some of these regions, such as Ribeiro or Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Somontano in Aragón or various country wine regions in Andalusia, are beginning to promote old, traditional grape varieties more strongly again. Other regions are still far away from this, struggling instead for bare survival. And regions like Cangas del Narcea, the only wine-growing region in Asturias, are completely unknown even in Spain.
