Txakoli Astobiza Rosé
Framing within the Protected Designation of Origin Txakoli de Álava, the uniqueness of the cultivated vineyard results in wines of marked personality and excellent quality. Astobiza wines are made exclusively with grapes produced in this vineyard, with a closed exploitation development, that is, with a winery only dimensioned to produce the vintage produced in its own vineyard. Therefore, its production is considered as Payment or Farm Wines, where the characteristics of the viticultural ecosystem are reflected in the wines produced.
Located in the small rural municipality of Oquendo, in the province of Álava, about 30 minutes from Bilbao, on a 10-hectare farm divided into 7 micro-plots. Located 250 meters above sea level, it is protected by mountains and far from the bottom of the valley, thus protecting itself from the fog and winter frosts, so damaging. 100% of our grapes are indigenous varieties, mainly Hondarrabi Zuri, some Hondarrabi Zuri Zerratie (Petit Corbu) and a small plot of Izkiriota known as Gros Manseng.
