DO Getariako Txakolina, located on the coast of the Bay of Biscay in and around the small fishing towns of Getaria and Zarautz, is perhaps the most notable Basque DO. Renowned for its iconic, spritzy, fresh and young white wine Txakoli, it is particualrly loved in the nearby gastronomic mecca of San Sebastian. Here, as is customary int he region it is served with local Basque Pintxos (tapas) with fish, fried morcels and anchoives ffeaturing regluarly. It's a small Spanish region with only 17 wineries registed with the DO. The vineyards, which run right up to the sea front are potected from the cold northerly winds by the hills. With one of the higest rainfalls of all the Spanish DO's hail is a serious risk for the grapes.

The winery was founded in 1989, the same year that the DO of Getaria txakolina was founded. The Errasti family has been growing grapes and making wine from these vineyards for over 40 years working with the local varieties of Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza. The vineyards and winery are near the coast line among rolling hills at about 90 meters above sea level. The sunniest and windiest slopes are planted with vines so the grapes can ripen and remain dry and avoid fungal and rot issues. All work in the vineyards is done by hand. Fermentation takes place naturally in stainless steel tanks before the wine is bottled while young to retain some of its natural effervescence.

Tasting note: Bright; ripe and full of delicate white and green fruit; pear puree and grass. Grape and green apple lead; juicy and moutwatering with lively limey acidity and nice wiehgt in the mid-palate The finish is as per, beautirul salinity. Notable spritz on the pallet; with more green fruit; underripe melon and key lime pie. Fresh; mineral finish.
