Characteristics of Couto Mixto Branco

Couto Mixto Branco is an organic white wine made on lees by Couto Mixto - Xico de Mandín in the D.O. Monterrei (Galicia) with the Doña Blanca and Verdello varieties.
 
Couto Mixto is the project started by Francisco Perez, also known as “Xico” in 2004. He is an expert in the native varieties that grow in the “raia”, in the border towns of Mandín and Lamadarcos (between Portugal and Orense), and he produces honest wines using local traditions. 
 
The Couto Mixto Branco grapes come from several plots in the Galician mountainous area next to Portugal. These vines are planted in very poor shale and granite soils and have a low yield. They are cultivated using ecological agriculture.
 
In the winery, the Couto Mixto Branco grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. The resulting must is fermented in a cement press with native yeasts and it rests on its lees in stainless steel tanks. It is finally bottled without being filtered, clarified or adding sulphur. 
 
Xico is a local expert, which allows him to produce this Couto Mixto Branco, a fresh, honest and lively white wine that is born on the border between two countries.

Designation of Origin D.O. Monterrei

The Monterrei Valley is often only considered for the cultivation of cereals, fruit trees and other horticultural products, but the Valley is today one of the most dynamic regions in terms of wine production. The transformation and improvement of viticulture and the installation of wineries such as Terra de Gargalo (owned by Roberto Verino), Pazos del Rey, Quinta do Muradella, Lobazán and Valdevellos, among others, have contributed to increased production of quality wines within designation of origin, which are becoming ever more present in the main Spanish markets.
