Tasting Notes

It's important to always be looking forward to something new and exciting with some wow factor. This is exactly what you'll find on this still white wine from the northeast of Spain. Made entirely from a local white grape, fermented with native yeasts and bottled unoaked. Purely lush and fresh on the palate and an ideal partner with fish of any kind. The Mas Gomà estate consists of a main farmhouse, founded in 1724, and a charming Romanesque church called Sant Valentí, built in 1135. Father and son, Joan and Joan, only use the oldest vines for their wines and sell off the rest to other wineries in the area.

Staff Pick Notes

Finding discoveries like this is one of the most exciting parts of being a wine lover. It is a classic story of what is old is new again. The winery’s property has been under cultivation for nearly a millennium and stewarded for the past 100 years by the Vendrell family. The family’s current generation (a father-and-son team) have now decided to farm with organic and natural principles to coax out the beautiful character of this unique terroir and indigenous grape variety. And the wine is incredible—vivid, pure, and precise—resembling the best aspects of old-vine sur lie Muscadet or a powerful, young white Burgundy while remaining distinct and authentic to this corner of Spain. This is one to immediately put into the year-round rotation.

In Rioja, Navarra, and the Ribera del Duero (which have the...
