Txakoli Fest- a celebration of Basque wines and pintxos

We'll be filling our lush, urban patio with thirsty and hungry souls looking to try 6 different txakoli, a couple of funky natural Basque ciders and delicious pintxos.

A special guest DJ will be spinning some tunes and the Porrons will be flowing; this is a party not to be missed!

Txakoli (pronounced[cha-ko-lee] or Chakoli): a slightly sparkling, very dry white wine with high acidity and low alcohol content produced in the Spanish provinces of Basque Country, Cantabria and northern Burgos. It's made from the equally easy to say grapes of Hondarribi Zuri, Munemahatsa and Hondarribi Beltza.                                                             

Pintxos (pronounced[peen-chos]): little snacks or tapas that are typically eaten while drinking at bars in the Basque region. Pintxo, also meaning "spike", refers to how these tapas are served on bread and spiked on a toothpick.

Porron([por-on]): a traditional glass wine pitcher used in Spain and Catalonia. Used as a communal wine pitcher, it allows everyone to drink from the same vessel without touching one's lips.
