'The Flower and the Bee' aims to introduce native Galician grapes to a wider audience. This is a lovely full-flavoured white wine, with powerful flavours of herbs, pears and white peach. Real presence, but not at all heavy. Just lovely fruit intensity, and amazing freshness.

Nestled at the eastern edge of Galicia, the Ribeiro DO is split by three rivers. Coto de Gomariz is located in the zone of Ribeiro where the slopes overlook the Avia river and consists of 27 hectares. Shisteous, granitic and sandy soils, steep slopes, tiny yields and a unique microclimate make this spot ideal for growing the local varieties which include Treixadura, Godello, Loureira and Albariño. Owner Ricardo Carreiro and winemaker Xosé Lois Sebio have introduced biodynamic principles, and are producing great wines at great prices.
