FeelFree offers to take you on a private gastronomic tour travelling to the Idiazabal, the mountain village where the famous traditional Basque cheese is produced and end the tour in a winery to sample txakoli, the locally grown wine.
We start from Donostia / San Sebastian and we will travel to the village of Idiazabal, visit the museum and walk around the area to visit a traditional farm of this famous and recognized cheese. After a varied cheese tasting we will head for the fishing town of Getaria.
The charming fishing village is also the birthplace of Juan Sebastián Elcano (Getaria, 1487-1526) the first man to sail around the world. It is probably one of the medieval historical centers that best reflects the passage of time. We’re definitely at a privileged place in the geography of Gipuzkoa. Let’s enter the old quarterand have the posibility to eat grilled fish at one of its famous restaurants in the fishing port itself.
After a nice walk around the village, we will visit a txakoli winery to understand the autochthonous process of making this particular sparkling wine elaborated form a unique vine. These grape, Hondarrabi-Zuri and Hondarrabi-Beltza, receives the gentle caress of the breeze from the Cantabrian Sea, which makes this wine so special in the world.
After a wine tasting and a tour of the winery we start our way back to Donostia / San Sebastian, where we can relax or choose from a pintxos route or dinner in a gastronomic society of the city.
