    Winemaker Notes

    A young, fruit-forward Txakoli, easy drinking. In the mouth it is balanced, fresh and long, with an appealing slight bitterness on the finish, an agreeable characteristic of this variety. An Atlantic wine, reflecting where it is made and our vitiicultural and wine-making philosophy.

    Image of winery
    Bodegas Itsasmendi (Basque for "Sea and Mountain") comprises 35 hectares of vineyards originally planted in 1989. It’s located in the Basque DO of Bizkaiko Txakolina overlooking the Bay of Biscay, not far from the city of Bilbao. Grapes are farmed by a small group of partners who own the extraordinarily beautiful land.

    Since 2002, Itsasmendi’s winery and a large portion of their vineyard have been located in the UNESCO-declared Biosphere Reserve of Urdaibai. As a Biosphere Reserve, Urdaibai is one of 580 unique ecosystems across the world devoted to sustainable development and the creation of a balanced relationship between man and nature. Certified in sustainable viticulture by eco-friendly tourism organization, Turdaibai, the owners of Itsasmendi are delighted to work in Urdaibai, where their natural farming techniques are shared throughout the entire Biosphere Reserve network.

    On the southern edge of the rocky Bay of Biscay in northern Spain, this is Basque country and home to the refreshing and slightly effervescent (usually) white wine, Txakoli. Three subregions compose the larger one: Getariako Txakolina, Bizkaiko Txakolina and Arabako Txakolina. While Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza are the main grape varieties, other French varieties are scattered throughout the region.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
