Wine Lover's Guide to Basque Country

Wine Lover's Guide to Basque Country

Winemaking has been taking place in Basque Country since ancient times, with the Romans having first tended vines here. The Spanish region’s mild coastal climate and old-growth vines yield high-quality reds and whites. See below to discover what you should be drinking in Basque Country. 

Must-Try Varietals

Perhaps the most ubiquitous and most unique wine of Basque Country istxakoli(pronounced “cha-coli”), a fruit-forward and mildly effervescent white. Txakoli is produced in one of three areas with designation of origin status—Getaria, Biscay (Bizkaia), and Álava—and makes for a refreshing accompaniment to seafoodpintxos (Basque Country tapas). 

Basque Country is also home to Spain’s most renowned wine region: La Rioja. Located to the south of Basque Country, the Rioja Alavesa subregion is known for its full-bodied reds featuringtempranillograpes, though a small amount of white wine is also produced here usingviura(known elsewhere as macabeo) grapes.
