Bodegas Itsasmendi was built by friends with a shared vision of producing authentic wines from the finest coastal terroir. Their exploration lasted nearly six years and resulted in over 90 acres of vines dotting Spain’s Bay of Biscay. Spread over 17 carefully placed sites, their collective acreage provide the diverse climate and geological conditions necessary for the precision displayed in their wines. The majority of their production is dedicated to native varieties Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zuri Zerratie; naturally rugged and well-suited for demanding coastal conditions, these varieties thrive with help from prevailing onshore winds that work to protect fruit from the constant threat of rot. Under the care of founder Garikoitz Ríos and oenologist and viticultural manager Bingen Mendizabal, Itsasmendi believes the alliance of innovation, tradition and exceptional vineyards will result in the finest Txakoli wines.bas

Bodegas Itsasmendi (Basque for “Sea and Mountain”) comprises 35 hectares of vineyards originally planted in 1989. It’s located in the Basque DO of Bizkaiko Txakolina overlooking the Bay of Biscay, not far from the city of Bilbao. Grapes are farmed by a small group of partners who own the extraordinarily beautiful land.

Since 2002, Itsasmendi’s winery and a large portion of their vineyard have been located in the UNESCO-declared Biosphere Reserve of Urdaibai. As a Biosphere Reserve, Urdaibai is one of 580 unique ecosystems across the world devoted to sustainable development and the creation of a balanced relationship between man and nature. Certified in sustainable viticulture by eco-friendly tourism organization, Turdaibai, the owners of Itsasmendi are delighted to work in Urdaibai, where their natural farming techniques are shared throughout the entire Biosphere Reserve network.
