The grapes for this wine are grown on south-facing hillside soils at an average height of 50-200 metres above sea level, with a distinctly Atlantic climate. Sourced from 18 different plots, grown sustainably, and represents about 80% of total production of the winery.

Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the fresh aromatics of the grape, and the wine is aged in stainless steel (off the lees) until bottling in the spring. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation. 

Itsasmendi Txakolina are typical of the Bizkaiko style, which is different than those of DO Getariako (of San Sebastián) which usually have a slight carbonic fizz.
