Bodega Agerre's Txakoli is a refreshing, dry white wine with tart citrus flavours of green apple and lemon. Its crisp and balanced acidity is complemented by an enticing salty spritz, creating an incredibly aromatic finish. Perfect for accompanying fish or sushi, this Basque wine is a delightful accompaniment to starters and snacks. A bottle of Bodega Agerre, Txakoli is utter bliss on a sunny day in the garden.


About the Producer

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.

Vineyard and Winery

The 20 to 30-year-old vines are planted on soils comprised of clay, sand and limestone within east-facing vineyards that 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% whole bunch pressed Hondarrabi Zuri. On arrival to the winery, the grapes were pressed at low pressure. The free run juice was fermented on lees in stainless-steel drums at controlled temperatures of 8-9°C.
