One can be mistaken for thinking that only the Provence region makes rosé. Not true by a long shot. These great summer wines come from all over the place. And one of those places is Basque Country. Eric Asimo writes
Ameztoi is from Basque Country in northern Spain, which has no rosé tradition. Ameztoi started making this wine in the last 10 years or so, and it has proved to be highly popular in the United States.
It is from the Txakolina region.
It is light — and I think worth a try. You might even consider visiting to check out the people who make the wine!
Northern Spain Gastronomy offers a tour as well (I guarantee you that this name will grate on the nerves of the Basque who do not like to be thought of as “northern Spain”)
