Txakoli has long been the secret of the Basque Country. A wine that is often a little a course but perfectly suited to the seafood pintxos being served up all over the region. In recent years, Txakoli has found itself making its way to the UK in smart bottles and with much more attention being paid to what is in the glass.

 

If you haven't tried it then you are missing out. Everyone should have a touch of txakoli in their tastebud lexicon of pleasure. 

Here Robin Goldsmith anticipates his forthcoming trip to the region and expounds on the sensations of tasting one of the txakoli's on display at the 'Wines from Spain' 2016 show.

This wine is available Moreno Wines in London's Maida Vale. Give them a buzz or drop in if you are in the area and try some txakoli!
