Vignettes with Txakoli

TXAKOMIC is a proposal that mixes the comic with the txakoli in different ways.

On the one hand we talk about the stories with txakoli in the background. The screenwriter Mikel Begoña, together with different authors with a Biscayan denomination of origin, brings us every two months a new comic in which txakoli is the common thread of different family stories, fraternity, adventures … different scripts that value, not only the txakoli but the context in which it is born.
