Listen: whether you hire us or not, read what comes below. You´ll find it useful.

Basque Cheese, Family Wine Cellars and Getaria

If you enjoy wine and cheese and are looking for an authentic experience, join us! We will visit a Basque Idiazabal cheese farm, a family txakoli wine cellars and vineyards, take you through an old fishing village, and gaze over magnificent cliffs minutes away from San Sebastian. The Basque Coast is tranquil and exquisite. Known to help you disconnect from it all. Introducing you to the Basque Gastronomia. Hear that? That is the sound of the waves inviting you in.

What will we visit?

basque cheese tour

BASQUE IDIAZABAL CHEESE FARM

I’ll tell you a secret: Basque Idiazabal Cheese is not fabricated on the shelves of supermarkets. If you think witnessing sheep being milked by machine with suction pulses every other second is not agreeable, this tour is not for you.

If you love cheesecake, yogurt, ice-cream and are a genuine cheese fanatic, it very well may be for you.

On this tour you will learn about the entire cheese fabrication process, beginning to end: the milking of the sheep (depending on the time of the year), the pasteurization of the milk and curation process, all included. Different cheeses will be tasted including fresh cheese, cured cheese and (sometimes) “cuajada”.

GETARIA: THE BEST GRILLED FISH

Which village has the best grilled fish in the world? Getaria. In the whole world you say? In a small particular coastal town minutes away from San Sebastian? Yes. And if you don’t believe us, come have a look for yourself, we will take you along the narrow village streets, lined with open grills facing the spectators.

The first man to successfully circumnavigate the world, Portuguese Captain Magellan, right? Nope, it was Juan Sebastián Elcano, Basque navigator from Getaria! We tend to spend some time enlightening guests with the crazed adventure of Elcano, who arrived to navigate his way around the world. Don’t worry, it’s a fun conversation, you won’t fall asleep.

Cristobal Balenciaga was also born here. Anything else you might think? Of course! Tiny narrow streets filled with small delicatessen shops, and txakoli of course. Did anybody say Txakoli?

FAMILY TXAKOLI VINEYARD

The family txakoli vineyard will be the the last stop on this tour. We will learn about the elaboration of this wine, how the coastline affects the vineyard and how intimate and relaxed the Basque landscape can be. We will visit the vineyard and see their elaboration tanks, cheers to txakoli whilst eating a gilda, Anchovies from Guetaria or Cantabrian Tuna. All this to add to the ocean and mountains surrounding us. TOPA!

KEY: Txakoli is pronounced CHA-KO-LEE, and is a typical wine made with Hondarribi Zuri grapes. This wine is high in acidity and dry, at times with slight notes of fruit and a hint of Burbuila! Bur what? That means bubbles in Basque! Hey, let’s quit talking constantly about food and wine!
