The Hasiberriak winery where Arotz txakoli is made is located in the municipality of Ibarrangelua, in the heart of the Urdaibai Reserve, in front of the Izaro Island, Mundaka, Bermeo and between the beaches of Laga and Laida, next to the Hotel Gametxo. An interpretive model of viticulture where the biosphere fosters life and maintains adequate conditions for the sustainable cultivation of the vine.
The fermentation and aging in the barrel, together with the over-saturation of the lees, give it a special, different and unique character in the D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina.
The vineyards located in the Urdaibai reserve have the direct influence of the Bay of Biscay.

The plot of Errigoiti “paraje de Maidaga”, with an area of 2 hectares and a height of 385m at sea level, has a southeast orientation, receiving the first rays of sun of the day.
