We all agree that San Sebastian and the Basque Country are all about food.

But they’re also about marvellous landscapes, lush and green mountains, endless rivers, traditional sports as rowing and about WINE. And when you talk about wine in the Basque Country you talk about TXAKOLI.

Txakoli is a white wine that is produced only in this area. It has been produced since the XIII century and history describes that the monks on pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela were the ones who initiated this wine production.

15 km outside San Sebastian there is a small village called Orio, and there you find the vineyard Bodega Katxiña. And I keep one of my best memories right from this place.

In this little paradise you can feel the most fantastic atmosphere, really tasty food and good wine: no frills, only straight through good food and the most beautiful sunset over the lush mountains.

Grilled turbot, grilled meat, crisp cold txakoli and world-class service from the fantastic and always smiling family Zendoia, that runs the business.

ON EGIN!!!!! Which means cheers and bon appétit in Basque.
