About the Winery:
Wine does not have to be complicated. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in Julian and Maia Ulacia’s simple but functional winery above the small fishing port of Getaria, a few kilometres along the coast from San Sebastian in the heart of Basque country. This 6 Ha estate has been family owned since the 1940’s. The winery produces a scant 6,000 cases of wine annually, most of which is consumed locally.
Ulacia Txacoli (pronounced chak-o-lee) is a light, petillant white wine that is best served as an aperitif or with seafood. The Ulacia Txakolia Rosado is a rosé made from blending both white and red grapes.
About the Wine:
A blend of 95% Hondarrabi Zuri and 5% Hondarrabi Beltza rooted in granite bedrock with a clay topsoil. Grapes are hand-harvested in late September or early October; direct pressing into steel tanks for fermentation and three-month elevage. Bottled with residual carbonic zing from the tanks.
