The Talai-Berri winery is located at Zarautz, one of the towns belonging to “Getariako Txakolina” Guarantee of Origin. Built in 1992, the winery lays on the sunniest slopes of Mount Talai Mendi, surrounded by 12 ha of vineyards.
Bixente Eizagirre Aginaga represents the fourth dynasty generation, and his daughters, Itziar and Onditz, the fifth generation making Txakoli out of their vineyards fruits.
The Txakoli elaboration relays on the most advanced techniques focused on quality, using boxes for vintage, selection tables, controlled fermentations… These techniques make possible the production of a young and fruity wine.
Bixente Eizaguirre, son of family with a great wine-production tradition (five generations) and founder of the Talai Berri winery, already had a vast professional career on the wine-production area. After many efforts for achieving the Guarantee of Origin for a product whose ancestors, as well as himself, had been working for (he was the one who actually encouraged and took the initiative), he decided to build a winery to meet all the requirements a Guarantee of Origin demand.
This way, after the creation of Txakoli de Getaria Guarantee of Origin (1989), Talai Berri became the first winery built exclusively for manufacturing and distributing Txakoli (1992), complying with all the dispositions of the law regarding Guarantees of Origin and according to the parameters required for a Chateau. From the very beginning of the Guarantee of Origin, Bixente Eizaguirre is member of the Txakoli de Getaria Guarantee of Origin Control Board.
