Txakoli Wine Region Map

The Txakoli wine region is in the beautiful Basque Country in the North of Spain. País Vasco, or Euskadi as it’s known locally, is renowned for its innovative gastronomy and striking landscapes, yet not so well known internationally, at least for its light, fruity and acid-driven, slightly sparkling white wine, Txakoli (pronounced cha-ko-lee). Txakoli dates back hundreds of years with a fierce tradition regarding production from indigenous grape varieties; Hondarrabi Zuri, Hondarrabi Zuri Zerratia, and Izkiriota. It is, however, only fairly recently that the region gained D.O. status, the first being D.O. Txakoli Getaria (or Getariako Txakolina) in 1989, thanks to local viticulturists getting together to make it happen. Txakoli Getaria is a coastal region between Getaria and San Sebastian and is the largest of the three sub-regions in production. Txakoli Bizkaia (Bizkailo Txakolina) is located further north-west, also on the coast, and the wines here are typically more minerally and slightly more acidic. The third and smallest sub-regions, Txakoli Álava (Arabako Txakolina), is inland, south of Bilbao in the Ayala Valley, approaching the Rioja Alavesa sub-region. You can discover these unique, zippy wines as part of our Basque Food and Wine Tour.
