Most tapas-bar hoppers wash down their tasty snacks with zuritos, small glasses of beer. But if you're a wine-lover, you might also consider a crisp white wine called txakoli, a denomination of origin which is to the Basque Country what albariño is to Galicia. It's produced in the countryside around San Sebastián, especially the towns of Getaria and Zarautz. It's got a light alcohol content of 9.5 to 11.5 percent. Though documented in history back to at least the 16th century, txakoli remains relatively little known outside the Basque Country. So when you're here, drink your fill - it's light, refreshing, and just plain delicious!
