Bodega Itsasmendi was created in 1994 by a group of winegrowers whose initial aim was to produce a quality Txakoli that stood out in the general context of white wines and to convey the individual character of our winemaking region to the best of our ability.
Re-establishing a social-economic activity that is as important to Biscay as wine-growing has been in centuries past. Starting with three hectares in Muskiz, Bakio and Mendata, a winery was set up in Muskiz with a production capacity of 25,000 L. In 2003, the facilities were relocated to Gernika. These years were significant, not just for the way in which Itsasmendi Txacoli was recieved by the specialist press, restaurants and consumers, but also for the capacity to innovate in creating new products.
