The real Basque wine with a private guide
The most authentic Basque wine is made of grapes that grow by the Ocean and breath its salty wind. To learn about it we are going to one of the most beautiful spots in the coast, to Zarautz and Getaria.
You will be visiting an astonishing village of Getaria, birthplace of two extraordinary men: Juan Sebastian Elcano, the first man who managed to circumnavigate the Globe, and the brilliant couturier Cristobal Balenciaga, who still influences modern fashion.
The grapes growing in such surroundings are very lucky grapes! Lets's check it at one of family wineries of the region. Here you will learn about the peculiarities of the wine and of course you will get to try it! Different barrels offer different tastes!
Tips to add:
- Balenciaga Museum: a unique fashion museum dedicated exclusively to the creations of this couturier.
- Do not miss the opportunity to eat the best grilled fish in one of the local restaurants!
