Coto de Gomariz is the oldest registered vineyard reserve in the Spanish peninsula. It is located in the valley of Gomariz, where wines have been made since the 10th century. For centuries, it has belonged to different ecclesiastical orders. It was not until the middle of the 19th century, with the confiscation of Madoz, that it was passed on to a private owner, leaving it distributed among different wineries and small winegrowers.
One of these private owners was the Carreiro family. In the 70s, Ricardo Carreiro Ameijeiras started to recover native varieties, and in 1980 they bottled their first wines. Xose Lois Sebio, technical director and oenologist since 2001, started to cultivate the farms using organic and biodynamic principles. Currently, most of the 24 hectares they own in Gomariz are cultivated using natural viticulture (following the Fukuoka theories). This way of working with the vineyards, the different soils (granite sands, clay and schist) and a unique microclimate, are the ideal conditions to achieve authentic wines that reflect the personality of the area where they are born.
