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 against wind and moisture from the Cantabrian Sea. The vineyards are located on the southwest, on a thick, stony soil with a lot of clay and marl. The vines are led up via poles and wire. This is done to promote air flow, prevent high humidity and to catch more sun.
Vinification The grapes are destemmed, crushed and gently pressed. After cold stabilization, the juice is stored in tanks. This is done at 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 into 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 green-yellow color. In the nose intense notes of pineapple, citrus, pear, grapefruit and floral notes. In the mouth the wine is crisp, refreshing with appetizing notes of pineapple and citrus. The sur-lie maturation gives complexity, length and creaminess. Delicious with grilled octopus or soft sheep cheeses.

Vineyard for 2022 Hiruzta Txakolí Berezia

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 D.O. 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.

Hiruzta works with the typical Basque white grape Hondarrabi Zuri (supplemented with a small amount of Gros Manseng). With this they make a classic Txakolí with an extremely subtle mineral bubble and the more modern Txakolí Berezia. A juicy Txakolí Tinto is also made with the red grape Hondarrabi Beltza.

Due to the high acidity, the mineral character and the civilized alcohol percentage, the Txakolí wines from Hiruzta fit very well with various dishes. Of course, the wines go perfectly with fish and shellfish, but also think of soft sheep and goat cheeses, grilled vegetables or veal.

The vineyards of Hiruzta are located about 3 kilometers from the Bay of Biscay. The winery is located in the Basque Country next to the village of Hondarribia, just one kilometer from the French border. Hiruzta grows the grapes on the mountain slopes of the Jaizkibel, the westernmost peak of the Pyrenees. This slope protects the vineyards from wind and moisture from the Bay of Biscay.
