Its jagged coastline plunges into a capricious cauldron of swirling azure. Where sand and rock and sea spray cease, mountains of misty emerald forests slope gracefully into creamy pastures below. Gradations of green melt into shades of saffron and ochre as cool breezes and warm sunlight coddle vast plateaus of vineyards. The Basque Country (Euskadi in Basque) is an autonomous community situated within the border of northern Spain, with a people that proudly retain their own distinct culture and language, magnificently navigating between two identities: that of their ethnic homeland and of their nation.
Like the delicious complexities of a stellar Txakoli vintage or an artfully constructed pintxo, the Basque Country of northern Spain is best savored note by note, allowing time for each flavor to reveal itself slowly and luxuriously.
