Introduction

About 30 years ago, txakoli was considered a vulgar drink, too acid, uninteresting. Nowadays it has become one of the great ambassadors of Basque cuisine. Visiting a txacoli winery will reveal the secrets of this young and fruity wine. Txakolí is a young, fruity white wine with moderate alcohol content (9.5º-11.5º). Pale yellow in colour, with intense citrus, herb and flower aromas, fresh, slightly acidic and very easy to drink, txakolí is at its best when served cool out the fridge and from a height to release its flavours as it splashes into the glass.

You will also enjoy an amazing view of the coastal scenery after this tour, anticipating the pleasure of the views from the restaurant where you have a table reserved for you.

Many of you will recognize San Juan de Gaztelugatxe as the island fortress of “Dragonstone” from season 7 of Game of Thrones. Located just off the shore along the Bay of Biscay and 35 km (22 miles) east from Bilbao, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe became a “must” when visiting the Basque Country.

The island is connected to the mainland by a man-made stone bridge. The bridge transitions into a narrow path that contains 241 steps and zigzags its way back and forth to the top. Once there, you will find the church which has a bell situated along the front of its facade. According to legend, after you have completed the climb, you should ring the bell three times and make a wish.
