Discover the secrets of the history and production of the best txakoli in the Basque Country and enjoy the views offered by Getaria and Zarautz.

Description

Txakoli is a local white wine made from green grapes and has been produced in the Basque Country since long before the 16th century. The land surrounding the coastal town of Getaria gives its name to the Denomination of Origin "Txakoli de Getaria", the best and most exclusive version of this wine. We present you with a unique experience in which you can get to know the fishing villages of Getaria and Zarautz with local experts, and discover all the secrets of this characteristic wine with a guided visit to a "txakolindegi" (house of txakoli, in Basque).

What we are going to do?

Half-day guided tour departing from San Sebastian. The tour first passes by the coast of Zarautz, an important surfing spot in the Basque Country where many Basques go on holiday. Then we will visit Getaria, a fishing village where it seems that time has not passed and the streets still look as they did many years ago. The birthplace of Juan Sebastian Elcano, the first man to make a round trip around the world, and Cristobal Balenciaga, famous fashion designer and the founder of the Balenciaga fashion house. Finally we will head to our main visit of the day, a txakoli winery where we will have the privilege of walking through the vineyard fields accompanied by an expert guide who will explain everything related to this local wine, and where we will also be given the chance to taste different types of txakolis accompanied by local products.
