Coto de Gomariz wine producer
Coto de Gomariz
Of the four river valleys that make up Ribeiro DO, the Avia is regarded as the best terroir, and within Avia the Gomeriz sub-zone is most prized. Coto de Gomeriz are based here, and indeed are largely responsible for its reputation. Founder Ricardo Carreiro led the revival of Ribeiro in the late 1970s and 1980s, acquiring vineyards in and around Gomeriz and replanting them with then-unfashionable native varieties.
In 2000 management of the estate passed to his son, also called Ricardo, who instigated a period of expansion and modernisation. Technical director Xosé Lois Sebio joined in 2001, and the two share winemaking duties. In 2004 they began cultivating the vineyards according to organic and biodynamic principles.
