Gaintza is a family-run estate established in 1923 in Spain’s Basque country, where four generations of the Lazkano family have produced Txakoli. The Gaintza vineyards are planted on the upper slopes overlooking the Bay of Biscay with the grapes being mostly Hondarrabi Zuri, Hondarrabi Beltza, and a small amount of Petit/Gros Manseng, Petit Courbu and Chardonnay. The Lazkanos have a deep respect for their land and the enduring local traditions and a committment to sustainable viticulture. Ambient yeasts are used predominantly along with cold fermentation, bottling at 0ºC to preserve the spritz. Grapes are 100% estate-grown.
