Established in 2001, Bengoetxe is the fulfillment of Iñaki and Rosa Maria Etxeberria’s dream to restore their storied estate back to wine growing. Their old farmhouse, pictured on the front-label, sits directly in the middle of their 3.5 hectare vineyard, which is split up into two parts: one running left of the house down a semi-steep slope, the other to the right up a gentle slope. Their vineyard is not plowed and thus teeming with microbial life and flora. They were granted organic certification in 2007, one of only two wine estates to be certified in the Basque Country.

GrapeTxakoli
Tasting NotesOnly produced in excellent vintages, Berezia, meaning “special” in Basque, is raised on the fine lees with regular battonage for 1 year, and then aged a year further in bottle for added complexity. It is a richer expression of Txakoli with luscious texture, sharp acidity, and penetrating saline minerality. A little over 300 cases produced.
