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 16 euros per person. Please write to us or call us to make a direct reservation.

Fantastic Day!
Jan 2020
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!

Great local winery for a tour and tasting
Nov 2019 • Couples
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.

Fantastic and Informative Wine Tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
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.

Wonderful Experience - Great Day Trip from San Sebastian - Highly Recommend
Sep 2019 • Couples
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.

Winery visit
Jun 2019
We arranged a tour at the last minute through our hotel which was a short but very uphill walk away. The tour consisted of an explanation of the growing process of the grapes then an indoor tour of the processing of the grapes to the bottling plant and then finally a fabulous tasting with some lovely anchovies ,bread and olives and three different varieties of txakoli . The tour was made very special as there was only one other couple with us which meant it was very personal and also the guide was extremely knowledgeable and also answered all our questions.

Brilliant way to get to know Txakoli and all her charms!
Aug 2019
Arkaitz was the most charming guide - extremely knowledgeable, authentic, warm and welcoming. We learned a lot - not just about Txacolli which has become a firm favourite - but about the Basque culture, country and wonderful people. It was a highlight of our week exploring the area and we enjoyed our purchases over the next three weeks of our holiday. Now we are working on our friendly wine importer in New Zealand to see if he can begin importing Gaintza here to address our 'habit'! Eskerrick ask, Arkaitz.

A lovely experience sprinkled with local Txacoli!
Jul 2019
We had a lovely tour at the Gaintz vineyards at the beginning of July, thanks to the clear and helpful explanations of our tour guide (I believe his name is Arkaitz?). We very much appreciated and enjoyed learning about the various wineries in Getaria, the Gaintz family and their winemaking tradition, the various types and the characteristics of the local wine etc. In addition, the price per person for the tour and the wine we tasted and ended up buying were affordable. This made the overall experience even more unforgettable. Highly recommend it!

Fantastic Txakoli tour with Arkaitz
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a lovely time at the Gaintz winery on an English tour beginning at 11.30 on Thursday 4 July. We learned about the wine-making process and of course drank some Txakoli! The scenery in the hills above Getaria was beautiful. The tour was led by Arkaitz, who was a clear, comprehensive and friendly guide. There was no pressure to buy anything (although we couldn’t resist purchasing a bottle!) and we felt that the EUR 16 per person fee for the tour was a fair price. We would recommend visiting the Gaintz winery on a trip to Getaria. Thank you for a lovely time.
