Potes is a small town that is rarely on the tourist radar, but its Orujo Festival is worth checking out. Orujo is the Spanish version of grappa, a type of brandy made with the solid left over after the grapes are pressed. The orujo festival gives you a chance to sample some of the potent aguardiente (fire-water) and see how it is made.
Potes is also close to the Picos de Europa mountain range.

5. Puerto de la Cruz
If you're still looking for warm weather, the Canary Islands are your best bet. Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife also hosts the San Andres Festival towards the end of the month, where the "Arrastre de los Cacharros" or "dragging of the pots and pans" takes place. It's a noisy event that is of course accompanied by the usual festive drinking, as the festival also coincides with the opening of the new wines.
