In 1989 some wine growers highly motivated by their love for their craft , reactivate viticulture in Bizkaia , a region with a long history in wine growing activity. In 1995 the first plant was established in Muskiz with a capacity for 25,000 liters and in 2002 the winery moved to Gernika , into the Biosphere Reserve of Urdaibai. (Unesco/ declaration in 1984)
The name of the winery is coming from the Itsasmendi hills close to the Bizkaia gulf And our valuable 35ha vineyards is in full harmony with the land and nature.
The unique personality of Itsasmendi Winery is coming from the mesoclimate and microclimate of each vineyard jointly with the planification of the management of the winemaking techniques. These vital practices and facts are the main factors used by the Denomination of Origin to grant their unique seal of authentic Txakoli.
In Itsasmendi we combine cutting-edge science with respect to traditional techniques and our project is now firmly recognized in the history of the Txakoli
