Tucked away on the turquoise-hued banks of northern Spain’s Cantabrian Sea sits the small yet fierce Getariako Txakolina DO. Here, sandy beaches and thick, salty air attract surfers and beach-goers alike, each in search of rough waters, rugged terrain, and classic coastline rusticity.

Unlike other Spanish viticultural zones which are better known for their boisterous reds and still white wines, in Getariako, effervescent bottles of spritzy, saline-tanged whites reign king. The Lazkanos farm their 25 hectares of Hondarrabi Zuri, Hondarrabi Beltza, and Gros Manseng all organically, producing wines from 100% estate fruit. Although handfuls of new wineries have been popping up all over Spain, at Gaintza, five generations worth of knowledge has been passed down through the family’s lineage, with each one adding an overwhelming sense of regional tradition to every bottle produced. And it doesn’t stop there. In addition to vinifying top-quality juice, the Lazkanos are also huge pioneers of local enotourism. Within the last ten years alone, the family has opened the Gaintza Hotel Rural, with the goal of sharing their breathtaking region to as many consumers as possible. In the local dialect, ‘Gaintza’ means ‘on top of,’ which pays homage to the aspect of the winery, which overlooks the rugged coastal terrain marked by rocky bluffs and cerulean waters.

The Lazkano family maintains a strong connection to their land and their winery, and believe that because they work with the environment, it is their responsibility to respect and care for it. Their entire line of wines is certified as “Integrated Viticulture,” which is a holistic approach which requires sustainable agriculture and the minimal use of any chemicals. This includes the farming on their entire 25-hectare property, as well as all parts of their winemaking process. Taking sustainability even further, Gaintza only uses recycled boxes for packaging their wines, chemical-free adhesives, “tree-free” labels with natural dye on their bottles, and bio-based capsules which reduce CO2 emissions by 80%.
