Cheese & Wine tour
On this tour we will depart from San Sebastian heading to the mountains, taking you to a sheep farm in the countryside, where you will learn how one of the famous local Basque cheese is made, Idiazabal labeled one. During the tastings, we will offer different ones after the pastor’s explanations.
Walk along the farm’s facilities with the owner, offering us a deep knowledge into the production, starting with the milking process of the sheep, obteining the first milk, you will be making your own fresh cheese! We will be tasting a sort of different cheeses pared with local wines or cider.
Continue the tour visiting the local white wine «Txakoli» region, exploring the vineyards of a family owned winery. Enjoy their famous » Txakoli» wines, produced with local grapes which grow along the slops on the surrounding hills, facing to sea. The secret of the wine, starts here!
Learning with the owner about the production of this local wine is fun, but tasting it with some local tuna, chilli peppers and a traditonal pintxo, that’s even better!
