for this region?

Txakoli, pronounced “Cha-ko-lee” is a wine region in the northwest corner of Spanish Basque country, along the Atlantic coast. This is a lightly effervescent, fresh, very dry wine that is most commonly white, although there are rosado and red versions, the latter without bubbles. For a long time, the wine was made as a regional specialty for local consumption, but in the past decade or so has seen a big rise in global popularity. 

It is divided into three regions, which in Basque are known as Arabako, Bizkaia and Getariako (in Spanish: Alava, Viscaya and Getaria). The Basque spelling of these regions varies. The wine itself is referred to as Txakolina and the regions are often on the label. So the label would read, for example, Arabako Txakolina. The red version is only produced in Bizkaia. 
Txakoli is heavily influenced by the Atlantic, making it mild and fairly damp. Trellising is mandatory to avoid mildew buildup on the grapes. The main grapes varietals are Hondurrabi Read more »

  • Ameztoi Rubentis Getariako Txakolina 2014


    Very interesting Greek rose, made from Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza grape varieties. Nice salmon pink color. There's crushed bing cherry on the nose. On the palate is some lemon lime citrus, bright red cherry, a touch of strawberry, nice acidity and a medium finish. There are no significant bubbles present but there is a touch of CO2 here.

    Very pleasant nose--flowery, some tropical fruit. Pleasant effervesence on the tongue. Nice tartness. Some grapefruit or lemony flavors. Incredibly refreshing. Having it with grilled halibut, tonight. I'm not going to heavily season the halibut. US$19.99 at WIne Club in Santa Ana. Read More

    The 2011 vintage of this rose is delicious, just like every other vintage I've had. Tart cranberry, refreshing acidity, the perfect little spritz of bubbles - perfection. Read More

  • Urki Txakoli 2008


    This precious Spanish gem is a high acidity and low alcohol wine from the Getariako Txakolina protected Designation of Origin on the northern Atlantic coast. Its a slightly more sophisticated sister to the Portuguese Vinho Verde. Txakoli is traditionally served as an aperitif with tapas. Its also well suited for a splendid picnic with chilled sh...
