Hiruzta is a young family business in the Basque Country. Hiruzta means 'a harvest by three persons', namely that of father Asensio Rekalde and his sons Txarli and Angel. Immediately after the admission of the village of Hondarribia to the DO Txakolí de Getaria, the family buys vineyards here. In 2012, their first wines come on the market. Hiruzta is now one of the best performing houses in the region. The wines are already sold in more than 20 countries.

The Hiruzta Txakolí comes from the municipality of Hondarribia in the DO Getariako Txakolina in the Basque Country, literally against the French border. The vineyards are located on the slope of the Jaizkibel mountain, the westernmost peak of the Pyrenees. This slope protects the vineyards from wind and moisture from the Cantabrian Sea. The vineyards face southwest, on a thick, stony soil with lots of clay and marl. The vines are guided upwards via poles and wire. This is done to promote airflow, prevent high humidity and capture more sun.
Vinification The grapes are destemmed, crushed and gently pressed. After a cold stabilization, the juice is stored in tanks. This is done with a cold temperature, so that the natural carbon dioxide formation is preserved.

The Hiruzta Txakolí Berezia is Hirutza's top model. The grapes are destemmed, crushed and gently pressed. After cold stabilization, the juice is fermented at a controlled temperature of 16-18 degrees. The wine then matures for more than four months in stainless steel tanks on the yeast cells, which are stirred by the wine every week. This process provides extra creaminess and complexity. The wine is clarified and filtered before bottling. In the glass, the wine has a light greenish-yellow color. In the nose intense notes of pineapple, citrus, pear, grapefruit and tones of flowers. On the palate, the wine is crisp, refreshing with tangy notes of pineapple and citrus. The sur-lie maturation gives complexity, length and creaminess. Delicious with grilled octopus or soft sheep cheeses.
