Bodegas Gaintza is a typical family business and is located next to the old family farm, which was built in 1923 by José Antonio Lazkano. His great-grandsons, Joseba and Urtzi, now manage the vineyards. They have taken over from their father Nicolás and their mother Mariángeles can still be seen in her van to deliver wine.

The Gaintza Txakolina consists of 85% Hondarrabi Zuri, 5%, Hondarrabi Beltza & 10% Gros Manseng, which are picked completely by hand and then pressed very gently. After pressing, the must goes to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, which preserves the beautiful characteristic acids. The Txakoli then rests on the fine lees for 5 to 10 months until it is bottled. Thanks to the low alcohol percentage and the light bubble, Txakoli wines are very pleasant.

This refreshing Txakoli has a beautiful light yellow color and is beautifully clear in the glass with very fine bubbles. In the nose very fresh with aromas of green apple with undertones of lemon and green herbs. Fresh and intense in the mouth. The light sparkle with well-integrated acidity leaves a fresh citrus aroma in the mouth with the unmistakable hint of saltiness. The Txakloina is a social wine, whose simplicity and originality appeals to everyone, both expert and amateur. Our advice is to serve this wine at 8-10 C. Delicious as an aperitif but definitely recommended with shellfish and sushi. Can age wonderfully given the beautiful acids.
