Txakoli (Txakolina) Wine Region Guide

Unveiling the Vibrant Wines and Breathtaking Scenery in the Heart of the Basque Country!


Last updated: April 1, 2024


The beautiful Basque Country is one of the unsung heroes of Spanish tourism. It’s all here – a dramatic coastline, innovative gastronomy, spectacular mountains, and some of Spain’s most refreshing wines. That’s right: even the inclement climate of northern Spain can turn its hand to wine production. The local tipple is called Txakoli, a light, fruity, zippy, slightly sparkling white wine; heaven served cold and accompanied by anchovies, tuna ventresca, and fish dishes. If you usually err on the side of caution and plump for a glass of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, we implore you to try it. Any journey into the glorious pintxo culture of El Pais Vasco cannot omit a glass (or seven!) of this wonderfully zesty and moreish white.
