Tasting Note

Txomin Etxaniz is owned and was founded by the Txueka family. One of the most historic and important families in this region, there is primary source documentation proving that the family has been producing wine near the town of Getaria since 1649, around when the town was founded.

In 1980, Iñaki Txueka started a movement with the goal of revitalizing Txacoli from Getaria and was a leader in the foundation of the official D.O. Getariako Txakolina in 1989.

The Txueka family currently works exclusively with the indigenous varieties of Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza, planted between 1915 and 2000 on pergolas and terraced trellises. The slopes that the vines are planted on are incredibly steep, so where pergolas cannot be used, the family plants on trellis. The winery and vineyards are only located 100m from the Atlantic, so precipitation levels are extremely high. The must is fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeast at very low temperatures to retain a small quantity of dissolved CO2. The resulting wines are beautifully refreshing, high acid white wines that pair flawlessly with seafood.
