Berroja Winery: Txakoli, nature and landscape
Due to the location of the Berroja Winery and its 24 hectares of vineyards on a 250m high hill with views over the whole of the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve, it allows us to interpret and show the Reserve, with its most interesting points, as well as the borders of Bizkaia to the south.
The vineyard and its management is another of the facets that we show as well as the basis of our production, to complete the visit with a tasting of txakolis and local products of artisan origin, known as Essences of Urdaibai.
The dominant view over the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve allows us to locate points of heritage interest such as Santimamiñe, the Arrola Hillfort, Gernika, the mouth of the estuary and its beaches, the Roman settlement of Forua, the Bizkaia Mountains (Oiz, Sollube, Gorbea and Ganekogorta) as well as the borders of Bizkaia in Orduña and Sabigain (Urkiola).
In this place we interpret the fishing and agricultural tradition of the Reserve and its relationship with the seasonal gastronomy that goes well with the txakoli made in the area.
The management and work of the vineyard is explained, based on the native Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza varieties, linked to a soil with defined and uniform characteristics, and its conformation of plots based on its orography and orientation, to produce grapes in a sustainable way and closely related to the surrounding flora and fauna, allowing the development of autochthonous species such as oak, chestnut, ash, holly, strawberry, laurel, holm oak and other relict species that exist in the vineyard's surroundings.
In the winery, the work carried out against the oxidation of the grapes and their musts is explained, to show that txakoli is not a wine of the year, but has an important capacity for ageing over the years, if the winery takes care of its production.
Then comes the tasting part, with a tasting of our txakolis and local products from artisan producers in the region that are the perfect accompaniment for txakoli.
