Txakoli plays a big part in the gastronomic experience of the area and it is a natural fit for us. We know that our Spanish restaurant customers in the UK will appreciate the fresh spritzy flavour of these wines and we are looking to introduce these wines to a broad universe of new clients.

“With an amazing history in the beautiful setting of Getaria, the Txueka Etxaniz family has been dedicated to vine growing for generations. We are thrilled that our favourite txakoli producers have agreed to work with us in the UK and can’t wait to start selling the 2016 vintage in the new year.”
