Light bodied, fresh attack, with a dense, floral and fruity mid palate, showing the salinity of the Cantabrian Sea.

7 is the magic number that represents perfectionism, wisdom and idealism.
Itsasmendi was created by a group of friends, many of which have worked in the winery that functions like a small cooperative in Guernica. They have a total of 37.5 hectares of vineyards in 15 different plots within the Bizkaiko Txakolina appellation, mostly local grapes but also some Riesling that has been there for 30 years now. A distinctly Atlantic climate, the broad geological and microclimatic diversity that give rise to at least 3 different weeks of ripening and a vinicultural philosophy of maximum respect for the environment. The use of indigenous varieties with a notable earthy character such as Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zuri Zerratie accentuate the wealth provided by Nature. They make around 200,000 bottles per vintage.
Their main objective is the search for the maximum oenological potential of each small ecosystem created in the vineyards, with character and originality.
