Getariako Txakolina

Iñaki and Rosa María Exteberría have always run the family’s dairy farm, but in 2001 they planted 3.8 ha of Hondarribi Zuri, Petit Corbu and Gros Manseng (known as Iskirita Zuri Handia in Basque), and started making Txacolí . Having their vineyards inland – as opposed to the majority of producers who have them right by the sea – meant that they fell outside the official appellation area, and Iñaki and Rosa María fought an ardous battle to have their wines recognised under the DO status. Nowadays they work their vineyards organically and produce a style of wine distant from the light and sparkly examples found in San Sebastián.
