Vineyards have been present throughout the entire geography of Biscay for centuries. From the hills stretching towards the sea to the inland valleys.

That is why the different wineries offer unique peculiarities and character, despite the fact that they mainly opt for the Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarribi Beltza varieties.
