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.
