About The Winery:
Basa Lore translates in Basque to "Wild Flower from the Forest" - a reflection of the location and the Angel family philosophy. Located near San Sebastian in Zarautz, where the ocean meets the forest. Basa Lore has been producing txakoli since 1930, now on the 4th generation Jose, Begoña and daughter Nerea. Such was their love for the terroir that together with 5 other wineries they founded the D.O. Getariako (Getar-e-ahko) Txakolina, predominantly focusing their winemaking on Hondarrabi Zuri & Beltza, indigenous grapes first planted in the region in 1425, as well as traditional methods to yield an old-style Txakoli. Precious to the Basque, Basa Lore wines are non-intervention, no sulfite added and native yeast. The trio have ensured an authenticity to their Txakoli that is ingrained in the history of the Basque country.
Visiting the Basa Lore winery in Zarautz is like traveling back in time to an era where Txakoli - a slightly sparkling, high-acid wine from Spanish Basque Country - was produced in the family farmhouses. Zarautz, right on the edge of the ocean is next to San Sebastian and 30 minutes away from the border of France.
Basa Lore means ‘Flor del Bosque’ in Spanish that shows the bubbling and green tones of the Txakoli when it goes into the glass. In 1925 the oak trees surrounding the Basa Lore house were uprooted and and vines were planted instead. So, wine has been produced here since 1930.
Traditions have been preserved ever since: pergola-trained vines, indigenous grape varieties (Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza) and their signature spritzy touch in the wines.
Basa Lore Winery has produced excellent quality Txakoli by combining modern and innovative techniques and machinery with traditional methods.
