San Sebastian vineyard tours

Some of the best wine tours in San Sebastian actually take place outside the city itself. The city’s beautiful location along the Basque coast, surrounded by lush greenery, means that it’s just a stone’s throw away from some of the most beautiful vineyards in the country. Consider taking a day trip to a local vineyard for one of the most unique wine tours in San Sebastian!

There are dozens of great vineyard tours in the area. Many of the best are found in the picturesque seaside town of Getaria. This picturesque fishing village is famous for two delicious reasons: anchovies and txakoli, a crisp, semi-sparkling white wine from the Basque Country. Gaintza (San Prudentzio Auzoa, 26, Getaria) is a stunning century-old winery offering guided tours. Another great option for a visit is Bodegas Txomin Etxaniz (Eitzaga Auzoa, 13, Getaria), a family-run winery producing some of the most iconic txakoli in the region!

The nearby town of Hondarribia is home to Hiruzta Bodega (Barrio Jaizubia, 266, Hondarribia), which offers another one of our favorite wine tours in San Sebastian. This family affair was a pioneer in resurrecting the winemaking tradition in the village. 

Don’t forget to join us one one of the best wine tours in San Sebastian (in our humble opinion)! Our Ultimate Pintxos & Wine Tour takes you off the beaten path and into San Sebastian’s best-loved family run pintxos bars.
