Mineral & Fresh

When the flower and the bee meet, everything begins.

This wine is the starting point to understand and appreciate the complexity of the Galician terroir and its native grape varieties. Deliciously easy-drinking, Coto de Gomariz has wanted The Flower and the Bee to be enjoyed unapologetically!

The wines of Ribeiro aren’t seen quite as often in export markets as wines from other Spanish regions.  It is located along the northern banks of the Miño River, just to the east of Rías Baixas’ Condado do Tea.   While Ribeiro has an Atlantic influence, it is slightly warmer than Rías Baixas.  The Treixadura-dominant white wines are Ribeiro’s specialty, characterized by fullness and zippy acidity. 

Powerful flavours of herbs, pears and white peach, with some apricot and spice notes. Real presence, but not at all heavy. Just lovely fruit intensity, and amazing freshness. 

Enjoy on its own, or pair it with Spanish tapas.

About the Winery

Coto de Gomariz

Ricardo Carreiro, padre Caco, founded Coto de Gomariz in the seventies, when he managed to return to his land after emigrating to South America like so many other Galicians. His dream was to make wines and restore Gomariz's prestige as a historical vineyard. Today, his son Ricardo Carreiro has taken over and runs the winery along with winemakers Inma Pazos and Miguel Montoto.

Known as the "Golden Mile" of the Ribeiro since the 10th century, Gomariz is the oldest Viticultural Reserve in the Iberian Peninsula and has exceptional characteristics for growing grapes.

This is a vegan-friendly, sustainably made treixadura from the Ribeiro region of northwestern Spain. I like its clean and uncluttered flavour profile, with notes of ripe apples, pears, oranges, and grapefruits. There is pleasantly honeyed note here as well. The palate is dry, fleshy, and rounded, with some spritz from dissolved carbon dioxide and crunchy, lively acids. Length is very good, with a grapefruit-infused finish. I like the focus and purity of fruit here. Ready to drink. Tasted February 2023 by Critic Understudy Megha Jandhyala.

A lovely teixadura born of young vines, so pure, refreshing, lively and upbeat. Features a delicate but complex aromatic profile that includes notes of honeysuckle, elderflower licorice, white pepper and white grapefruit. Prepare for a salty, lip-smacking finish of great length. Tasted February 2023.

Varietal treixadura from Coto De Gomariz in repeat of that 2020 beeswax and honey yet also mineral, elemental, saline and savoury. Less in terms of bitters and more so fleshy this time around. Like mandarin segments and persimmon though dry as the Ribeiro desert. Drink 2023-2025. Tasted February 2023.
