Bengoetxe means “come home” in Basque. Established in 2001 as a 3.5 hectare single vineyard estate, Bengoetxe is the fulfillment of Iñaki and Rosa Maria Etxeberria’s dream to restore this historically significant property back to vine-growing. This is the only winery outside of the town of Getaria to receive the Getariako Txakolina D.O. status, and one of two certified organic (since 2007) producers in the Basque Country. Winemaking: Classic and slow wild yeast fermentation takes place in small vats, located in their home garage, and then the wine is raised on the lees up to a year with no batonnage. SO2 is kept to a minimum, and because all CO2 is natural (not injected), the wine does not often show the spritzy character of other Txakolis.
