Doniene Gorrondona Txakolina is a winery covered by the D.O.Bizkaiko Txakolina. It´s based in Bakio, a municipality that has long been associated with txakoli. The company is evolving from a traditional farmhouse wine-maker to a true winery, and is tackling the challenge of getting txakoli production on track as a professional business. In this task it has the support of its young, technically skilled staff.
The Doniene Gorrondona Txakolina winery works on the basis of constant experimentation, trying out different vinification possibilities based on little-known, relatively unresearched grape varieties. Its red wine aged for a short period in casks and its cask-fermented white wine are the results of these efforts. It produces its wines from autochthonous Ondarrabi Zuri and Ondarrabi Beltza grapes, uses new vine growing techniques, selects low-yield harvests, uses cryomaceration and experiments with casks made of different types of oak.
