Doniene Gorrondona is a winery located in the once famous Bakio region of the Basque Country of Spain. Itziar and Andoni, along with another friend from the region, have rehabilitated and modernized this ancient vineyard and winery. Doniene Gorrondona owns 15 hectares of vines, including a unique two-hectare parcel of pre-phylloxera Hondarribi Beltza. The vines are planted pergola-style to allow air circulation in this moist climate. The Bakio valley creates steep-sloped bowl that faces the Cantabrian Sea. Hondarribi Zuri has been planted in the well-drained soils of these slopes. The vines are farmed organically and the wines are fermented using indigenous yeasts. Itziar and Andoni believe in creating wines that reflect their distinct terruño.
The wine is reminiscent of a refreshing Basque sea breeze. It is light bodied, clean, saline and mineral with high acidity and a lively palate. You may note a whisper of effervescence on the tongue. It is an ideal wine pairing for oysters, delicate fish or even sheep’s milk cheese.
Made from a blend of organically grown 85% Hondarribi Zuri, 3% Hondarribi Beltza and 12% Mune Mahatsa fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeast.
