Producer Profile


Established in 1925 and boasting their inaugural commercial vintage in 1930, Basaurresti stands as one of the pioneering wineries within the esteemed Getariako Txakolina D.O. With a lineage spanning four generations, they have continuously upheld their legacy as family producers. In the late 1980s, a modernization drive led to the expansion of their repertoire to include award-winning Basque sidra, distributed under the name Izeta Sagardotegia. Perched above the ocean, their winery benefits from refreshing salty-sea breezes that infuse the grapes with a distinct character. This coastal influence is believed by many to enhance the wines' minerality, contributing to their revitalizing nature characterized by tart acidity and a subtle Basque fizz.

Where The Wines Come From


Txakolina, hailing from the verdant hillsides of Spain's Basque Country, embodies the spirit of coastal winemaking with its crisp, refreshing character. Produced primarily in the provinces of Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa, and Araba, Txakolina wines are crafted from indigenous grape varieties such as Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza. These wines are renowned for their effervescence, often poured with a slight natural spritz, lending a delightful liveliness to each sip. With a bracing acidity and vibrant citrus notes, Txakolina wines are the perfect accompaniment to the region's seafood-rich cuisine and sunny seaside vistas. Embracing traditional winemaking methods and a commitment to sustainable practices, Txakolina producers allow the grapes to shine, resulting in wines that capture the essence of the Basque terroir and offer a refreshing taste of coastal Spain.
