Txakoli Basque Country
Viñedos _hirutza -p

Independant and privately owned, this small vineyard has been a lifelong dream of the Rekalde family. They are extremely proud of their txakoli. The bodega has been carefully restored respecting traditional production methods while also adapting modern technology. The bodega includes 10 hectares of vineyards, growing in the fold of the Jaizkibel mountain and produces about 100,000 bottles per year

Txakoli is dry white wine grown in the Basque region, the less common variety from Bakio uses a red grape and has a rose color. Red or white, it is often served as a cool aperitif to accompany a round of pintxos, the light refreshing and crisp flavor and minerality of txakoli accompanies seafood, cured meats and cheeses very well. Made using hondarrabi zuri grapes, local production of txakoli is very limited. Each region of the Basque Country from Getaria, Alava and Bizkaia have slight variations in their txakoli due to the quality of the soil and environment. Made in small quantities, good bottles of txakoli make excellent souvenirs to take home. 

This experience offers you insight into the history, cultivation and nuances of local txakoli production with activities and tastings of txakoli or mosto (grape juice) for your group.
