Etxegaraya Estate

Etxegaraya Estate. At the foot of the Jara, in a small valley, Marienna Hillau cultivates seven hectares of stepped vines on the side of a steep mountainside. The first plots, old vines of tannât variety, date from 1850. In the middle of a river of vines, the estate with its XIXth century Basque house produces four cuvées. A rosé and three reds with tannât grapes that Marianna blends with cabernet franc and sauvignon grapes. The Etxegaraya blend (the house of above) and the Lehengoa blend (In times gone by) are reds that are straight and full of character in line with the spirit of the region. The rosé, Aitaina, a vibrant wine, created in memory of her father. Visits and tastings from Monday to Saturday. Tel.: +33 5 59 37 23 76.
