Baskselekt | Txakoli: The Aromatic Essence of the Basque Country in Wine

Txakoli: The White Wine of the Basque Country

Txakoli is generally a young white wine with a moderate alcohol content, a very aromatic and fresh flavour, and a pleasant level of acidity.

Its most valuable treasure is its minerality. Through its touch of acidity, you can experience the miracle, the personality and the elegance of the wine.

This wine is produced using the indigenous Hondarribi Zuri grape variety, the fruit of very specific agro-climatic conditions with a temperate, wet climate.

We bring you a selection of the three appellations of origin that can be found in the Basque Country: Getaria, Bizkaia and Alava.
