Txakoli comes from the Basque country on the cool, green Atlantic coast of Spain. Typically it’s a slightly spritzy dry white with a saline tang, cousin of those other great Atlantic wines Muscadet and Vinho Verde, it's a natural partner to the abundant local seafood. 


About the producer: The family have a deep respect for their land and the local traditions but they're also looking ahead, adopting modern technology to improve quality. They own 25 hectares of vineyards, bathed by the fresh Cantabrian sea air, but protected by the Garate hill. They have a mix of older planting on high pergolas and newer terraced plantings. They mainly grow Hondarribi Zuri, the most common and traditional grape in Txakoli production.
