Urkatx Txakoli is made at the Zudugarai family winery where Mikel Errasti represents the 3rd generation at the helm. The family has direct control of all processes in the vineyard when selecting the grapes and in the winery that predates the DO itself. Mikel works the vineyards with the minimal amount of intervention needed and elaborates his txakoli through native yeast fermentation and natural carbonation.
