COTO DE GOMARIZ
Coto de Gomariz receives its name from the village where it’s located: “gomariz” that comes from the word “gomariza” which translates to branches of the vines.
It is the oldest wine producing area on the Iberian Peninsula; since the 10th Century(*) its been known as “Golden Mile of the Ribeiro” for the exceptional quality of the vineyards.
The Carreiro family, from Barro de Gomariz since generations ago and always dedicated to the vineyards, is the owner of these lands.
In the 80’s the grape growing project was converted into winemaking, cultivating 32Ha of vines scattered around different parishes in the valley of the river Avia in the Ourense province (Galicia).
