Itsasmendi es una bodega que fue fundada en 1995. Cuenta en la actualidad con 27 hectáreas de viñedo que crecen sobre laderas montañosas cercanas al Golfo de Bizkaia. Se trata posiblemente de la bodega más importante de la denominación de origen.

Itsasmendi 7 is a white wine from the DO. Bizkaio Txakolina produced by the Itsasmendi winery. This wine is a blend of 3 different varieties, Hondarrabi zuri Zerratie (65%), Riesling (18%) y Hondarrabi Zuri (17%).

The grapes used for Itsasmendi 7 are taken from 7 different plots (as hinted by the name) owned by the winery, which together span across 27 hectares. The vineyards are relatively young at 15 years old, although some of the vines are a little older at 20 – 25 years old. The soils are mainly limestone and sandy and have great variety of textures and depths.

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. Itsasmendi 7 finally ages, before being bottles, for 9 months (although this can vary depending on the vintage) in stainless steel tanks on its lees.

The Itsasmendi winery was founded back in 1995. Spanning over 27 hectares, most of which grow on mountain slopes near the Bay of Biscay. It is possibly the most important winery in the region.

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.
