The Butroi txakoli winery was formed in 2012, the result of the union of 4 families, three of which have long been making their txakoli in their private wineries, Etxebarria, Sasine and Oletxes, and a viticulturist.
These families have been making txakoli traditionally for several generations. They had limited means, but based on their knowledge and tenacity they have maintained the tradition of making txakoli in Bizkaia. Fathers and mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers have been the guarantors that currently 4 families have embarked on this project. What they have received from their ancestors they want to pass on to their daughters and sons.
The BUTROI winery manages 13 hectares of its own vineyards and maintains raw material supply contracts with winegrowers.
The majority white grape varieties are Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zuri Zerratia (Petit Courbu). They also grow the varieties Mune Mahatsa (Folle Blanche), Izkiriot (Gros Manseng), Riesling, ……As for the red variety, the majority is the Hondarrabi Beltza.
Vine plantations are found in Larrabetzu, Lezama, Zamudio and Gatika.
