About
At Gaintza we take great pride in receiving guests. During our guided tours, the visitor will learn about the history and tradition of local txakolina wines. We start the visit by observing how this tradition has formed the actual landscape, then our visitors will be able to visit the winery, or "bodega". The visit finishes with a wine tasting session where our visitors can taste and learn about the 3 wines we produce at Gaintza, the traditional txakolina, our rosé and our special Aitako wine. The wines are always combined with local products to taste. The visit costs 18 euros per person. Please write to us or call us to make a direct reservation.

Tour and tasting of the local Basque wine called txakoli. The location of the Gaintza Txakoli winery is beautiful as the grapevines spread out in all directions plus a good view of the sea and green hills. The hosts were knowledgeable and friendly. It is a family run business and you could see the love of what they do. Of course, the txakoli wine is very tasty.

We had a an intimate tour with Mauli as our guide. She was excellent and shared so much of the history of txakoli grapes and also the culture and heritage of the vineyards and the basque region. Would highly recommend booking with her as she was extremely attentive and caring to all our questions and needs. Not to mention the wine was also great! My favourite was the rose blend!

This was an excellent tour and our guide Johannes was the perfect host. The drive out took us through great scenery, beautiful look outs and to a great winery. The host was really informative and spoke great English and described the wine making in good detail. The wines were superb as was the pinxtos. We learned so much about the Basque Country people and culture from Johannes and highly recommend this tour, thank you very much

We had a wonderful visit to Gaintza Txakolina with Iona. Iona provided a great overview of their facility, wine production, etc. Finally, the wine tasting and pintxos were fantastic! Highly recommend taking a visit!

We didn’t stay in the hotel but toured the winery, a very informative tour, Iona was very knowledgeable and friendly, as well as helpful when arranging our visit. Lovely surroundings amidst the hills and their own vines, and of course near the sea so I imagine staying there would be very nice. Their txakolina (local wine variety) was very good, accompanied by local produce. Very good value and worth a visit.

Very informative wine tour, great to see the vines and go through the whole fermentation and bottling process. All three of the wines we tried were fantastic, I hope to visit again soon. Would highly recommend as a day trip from San Sebastian, lovely lunch in Getaria after.

We visited San Sebastian in late September, during the International Film Festival.  This also happens to be prime harvest time for local wineries, including the Txakoli makers in Getaria.  Gaintza was able to accommodate us and we were very fortunate to be hosted by Iona on what turned out to be a private tour for two of us. It was a beautiful day, and they had begun the harvest, so after learning about the vineyards, the grape growing, and how the government regulates Txakoli, we were able to see the grape de-stemming process (and meet Joseba, a member of the small family that runs the operation, as well as his mother, who was also working hard) and taste the juice before it began the fermentation process. Iona provided lots of detail about the process, including bottling, labeling, and distribution. Then we got to taste 3 different offerings --- traditional white, rose, and a reserva --- accompanied by local specialties of tuna and anchovies. When we returned to the town for lunch afterwards, we were excited to see Gaintza's wine on the wine list, and enthusiastically ordered a bottle! We would highly recommend seeking out Gaintza for a tour.
