It is the first vermouth in the world made with white wine from the Ondarrabi Zuri grape, harvested by hand and from Finca Astobiza, to which we add cereal alcohol with juniper from our London Dry Gin (best Gin in Spain 2020 at the World Gin Awards) , we adjust its friendliness with grape must and macerate various botanicals that we carefully select with different times. Among them stands out the presence of wormwood and citrus from the environment.

The concept of vermouth comes from Demijohn No. 3 out of 12 Demijohns that we have used for hundreds of tests tasted by the Astobiza team over the last few years. The goal achieved: balance bitterness and acidity on a long, clean and fresh palate, maintaining the Atlantic character of the wines we make and at the same time maintaining the gastronomic profile that characterizes us.

The controlled maceration of secret botanicals is divided into citrus, herbal and bitter.

Astobiza is a gorgeous winery in the Txakolí de Alava DO of Spain. Named after a portion of the mountains nearby, Astobiza is a young bodega with old family history in winemaking. Xabier Abando's memories of his father making wine and growing up in the vineyards during the 1950's, carried him past his father's untimely death when Xabier was only fifteen, and gave him the motivation and dreams to one day create his own bodega.  In 1996, his passion began to take form when he accrued an estate near the town of Okendo, and began planting his first 2 hectares of vines, and grew with each year. After his vines produced grapes he found suitable, he built his bodega in 2008 for his first vintage of wine at the age of 68. Now with his son-in-law Jon Zubeldia, and the help of enologist Ana MartÍn, Xabier is making beautiful Txakolí from his organically farmed estate that would have made his father proud.
