Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Ameztoi Txakolina is one of the top producers of Getariako Txakolina. They own 20 hectares of vines in the best location. From the vineyards one can see the town of St. Sebastian and understand the influence of the Atlantic Ocean on local viticulture.Ignacio Ameztoi constitutes the seventh generation to carry on the tradition of making Txakolina in the province of Getaria. Made from the indigenous grape varieties of Hondarribi Zuri and its red companion Hondarribi Beltza. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and bottled with residual carbonic acid that gives the wine its natural spritz.
Just five minutes down the coast from San Sebastian, Ameztoi's vineyards overlook the Atlantic Ocean. The Ameztoi family has been making txakolina in Getaria for seven generations, utilizing the indigenous Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarribi Beltza grapes to craft a light, crisp wine bottled with residual carbon to give it its signature natural spritz.
North of Portugal, on Spain's eastern seaboard, sits the Galician Coast. Heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean's weather pattern, the wine producing region here (known as Rias Baixas) tends to farm using trellises that allow for maximum airflow to keep the fruit well ventilated (preventing fungus and rot.) The main grape here is the Albarino, a thick-skinned grape resistant to mildew, and making for some lively, fresh wines of character.
