With this unique EXPERIENCE you will discover first hand how is made the txakoli, a basque wine of unbeatable quality with Designation of Origin-Getariako Txakolina. The owners of the winery will show us their vineyards, the cellar and the family farmhouse in the small fishing village of Getaria, surrounded by vineyards, mountains, hills and incredible views to the ocean.
In the winemaking process are combined ancestral knowledge with the most advanced techniques, resulting in a broth with lots of special and unique character.
Because of its quality and essence, the txakoli is present in places that are a reference in the Basque Country and worldwide, such as in the wine list of the famous restaurant ARZAK of Donostia-San Sebastián (3 Michelin stars ), in the Basque Culinary Center foundation (Centre of Research and Innovation in Food and Gastronomy) and in Café Fronton of Tolosa (1 star Michelin).
We start the tour in the vineyard near the farmhouse; walk trough the vineyards, explanations and characteristics of different grape varietie,s and among other things we will learn when and how to reap the harvest.
Then back to the cellar, where we will see step by step the whole process of how is the txakolí made, and finally a splendid tasting to try the txakolí.
Do not hesitate and come to enjoy this EXPERIENCE!
"My husband and I did join quite a lot of tours in France, Italy, USA, but i never write a review on the net before.
Last week, we joined three short tours which are organised by Basque Cooltour in San Sebastian, Basque Country (Spain). We had such a wonderful time all through the three trips (Cider Museum and Cider House tour, Cheese tour and Txakoli white wine tour). So i think i have to share this experience to the people who plan to go to San Sebastian.
Our guide ( Kepa) is very kind and friendly. The first half of the day, he bought us to the Cider museum. In there,we met a very pleasant , patience lady guide (Amaia) who explained all the apple cider processing steps to us and we can also had a chance to try the cider too. Then Kepa bought us to a cider house (Sidreria- Sagardotegia) to have our lunch there. The lunch was so wonderful that I finished all the dishes. Especially the fried fish and the T-Bone beef. Really very very delicious. Please don't miss it if you get a chance to visit San Sebastian! The second day, we joined Kepa to visit the txakoina making farm (Inazio Urruzola) . From there , we met the couple (Garazi and Xabi) who own the place. Garazi ( wife) led us to walk to the vineyard to explain those grape trees to us , then show us the procedures about the txakolina making. Her husband Xabi was the one who prepare our delicious lunch . During lunch we had time to sit together to try the pintxos and txakolina too. They are really warm and friendly persons and we chatted like old friends during the lunch!
Once again thanks to Kepa to bring us to such wonderful trips! We missed you!
