Bodega Agerre

Basque Country, basque cty Spain

The Agerre family’s 15 hectares of vineyards are planted on hillsides overlooking the medieval fishing village of Getaria and the Bay of Biscay, just a few miles from Spain’s gastronomic capital, San Sebastián. Emilio Agerre is the third generation of his family to make traditional-style Txakoli from the Hondarrabi Zuri grape variety.

 

The 20 to 30-year-old vines are planted on east-facing vineyards which help to maximise their exposure to the sun and to protect them from westerly winds. The proximity to the Atlantic means that the climate here is humid, mild and wet. As such, the vines are trained to a height of nearly two metres to provide the best possible ventilation, while the steep slopes and sandy soils, rich in organic matter, allow for excellent drainage.

 

Agerre’s Txakoli is made from 100% Hondarrabi Zuri. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel tanks and spends six weeks on its lees. This naturally low-alcohol, dry wine displays classic green apple and fresh lemon notes with a vibrant, sea-salty spritz.
