Acquaintance with Basque wine and private Basque gastronomic club


During this fascinating tour, I will introduce you to the unique Basque traditions.
We will visit two most charming coastal villages - Zarautz and Getaria.
This region is known for unique authentic Basque wine Chacoli which grows here. Grapes are grown on stunningly beautiful slopes that face directly to the ocean.
We will visit one of the family wineries.
The origins of the Basque culinary traditions can be found at Sociedades Gastronomicas or «Txokos» private cooking clubs not opened to the public, some of which are still men-only. These clubs date back to the XVIII century. Originally members gathered in old taverns and cideries (cider houses) to chat about the day and share their passion for cooking. Men meet in private gastronomic clubs, where they enjoy cooking together and to communicate with friends.

I have the opportunity to organize your visit and your meal in one of the oldest private gastronomic clubs so you will have a happy chance to be introduced to this unique Basque tradition.
