Guided tours

Saint-Jean-de-Luz and the wine Egiategia (Half Day)

Discover Saint-Jean-de-Luz and its magnificent bay. The city is a wonderful seaside resort with a very rich historical past thanks to the great characters who made its fame and its beauty.

Saint-Jean-de-Luz has been also undeniably linked to the ocean since the XIth century. It is still today an important fishing port and the anecdotes concerning the maritime history are many and intriguing.

But this access to the ocean hides many other surprises! One of them is the wine Egiategia which represents a real pride for the region. Indeed, the innovation is fantastic! Grapes from the South West of France and Navarre are selected for an unique wine-making process: underwater… in the bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz 😲 The vintages Dena Dela and Artha are therefore born from a formidable association between land and sea. An incredible and committed method which uses the richness of the Basque territory to delight your taste buds and surprise you😋

Let yourself be tempted, let yourself be guided 😉
