San Sebastian has quickly been growing as one of Spain’s most popular travel destinations and it isn’t hard to see why! The landscape is beautiful, the city is filled with culture, and the cuisine is amazing. Outside of the city lies an lesser-known wine region, Getariako, hiding what is soon to become your new, favorite white, Txakolina!
No plans of getting there in the near future to try it? No worries – we’ve got you covered. Today’s Thirsty Thursday deal will introduce you to your new go-to summer sipper while saving you some money on the travel and the wine!
Bengoetxe Txakolina 2014 – Yes, that’s spelled correctly! Pronounced “chock-oh-lee-nah, it truly is a unique treat. Only 1,700 cases were produced from this 3.5 hectare vineyard in the heart of Basque Country. This smaller, certified-organic operation allows for the winemakers to provide extra care to each vine ensuring high-quality wines year after year!
The wine is bottled unfiltered, unfined, and has a slight effervesence due to risidual CO2. It shows lush lemony fruit, hints of grains, chamomile, and flint-like minerality. Best served very chilled and enjoyed on warm day!
