The clay-loam soils on south-facing slopes support our strains of native varieties “Hondarrabi Zuri and” Hondarrabi zuri zerratia “and our minority varieties such as” Petit Manseng “and” Riesling “.
The production of Ieup txakoli begins with a manual harvest, followed by a pre-fermentation maceration, followed by pneumatic pressing in an inert atmosphere. The grape varieties used are Hondarribi Zuri and Zerratia, achieving a young, light, balanced wine, transmitting the direct essences of the 2 varieties used.
