Txakolina

(pronounced chock-oh-LEE-nah) is a white wine from the Basque region in Northern Spain. It’s slightly effervescent, very refreshing and is my preferred warm weather libation. The bottle of choice is from the maker Txomin Etxaniz, which is a little hard to come by but definitely worth the hunt. And if for some reason you don’t kick the bottle, cork it with a Best Year wine stopper!
