What you'll do

In the old town of Portugalete, declared Historic-artistic and unique in the whole region, and next to the Bizkaia Bridge (a World Heritage Site), you will know first hand a traditional txoko, typically Basque type of closed gastronomical and cultural society, only open to family members, where you can attend a private tasting where I will tell you the history of txakoli in Portugalete, its importance for centuries until its disappearance, to discover later the concept of modern Txakoli as high quality wine, an authentic atlantic wine. Also, if the day is right, you can discover one of the traditions of Portugalete, such as the village market, where you can buy flowers, fruits and quality products directly from the orchard.

Where you'll be

We will walk through the old town of Portugalete, declared a Monumental Complex and unique in the "Gran Bilbao" region. We can visit the village market, a survivor of an ancestral way of life and culture, just a step away from the Puente Colgante or Puente Bizkaia, a World Heritage Site. We will visit my family's traditional txoko, symbol of the Basque culture and gastronomy. Unique opportunity to visit, because only txoko members have access to it.
