Characteristics of Artizar

Artizar is a white wine from the DO. Bizkaiko Txakolina produced by the Itsasmendi winery. This wine is made using only Hondarribi Zuri grapes.

The grapes used to make this wine were grown back in 1989, on vineyards that are home to shale and sandstone soils. The region has an Atlantic climate, which is mild for much of the year, although there is plenty of rainfall.

The harvest and various phases of the winemaking process are carried out using traditional methods, drawing on the years of experience that the winery’s team has in the industry. This wine then ferments in 2,000 litre French oak vats, before ageing in the same container on its lees for another 8 months (although this can vary slightly depending on the vintage).

The result is an elegant and complex wine, a fantastic representation of the DO. Bizkaiko Txakolina.

Itsasmendi, founded in 1989, is currently located in the town of Gernika.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina

Winery Itsasmendi

The truth is that for many centuries, nobody gave txakolí wine serious consideration, and very few mourned its disappearance. Compared to powerful wines with a higher alcohol content, txakolí was considered a ‘little’ local wine (‘vinillo’) of little interest. For a long time, a wine’s alcohol content was its only introduction. There were periods where still very poor production methods had not allowed the varieties to speak for themselves, and what’s more, txakolí forms part of a family economy at the same home-grown level as meat, milk and fish. In addition, the txacolí industry has not been advanced or prepared enough to rigorously produce this small oenological joy until the last few decades.
