Txakolina (shack-o-LEE-na)

In Basque, technically translates to “place of txakoli.” Txakolina is a type of fresh white wine made in Spain’s Basque Country. Considered a fantastic match for sharp cheeses, Serrano ham, and any sort of seafood, Txakolina is made from an indigenous grape variety called hondarrabi zuri. Txakolinas are racy, crisp, and usually fairly simple. Because of their consumate refreshingness, they are ideal as aperitifs. Txakolinas were once hard to find in the U.S. No longer. The wine now appears to be a favorite among sommeliers across the country.
