In the Basque Country there are three different txakoli Guarantees of Origin, the one from Getaria, the one from Vizcaya and the one from Álava.
The first Guarantee of Origin that regulated the txakoli was established in 1989; specifically, it was the Guarantee of Origin Getariako Txakolina —Txakoli from Getaria. Thanks to its establishment, txakoli wine entered the modern era and the wine market as a quality and competitive product. The G.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina —Txakoli from Bizkaia— was established in 1994, and we would have to wait until the 21st century, in 2001, for the youngest of our designations, the G.O. Arabako Txakolina —Txakoli from Álava— although it had already claimed its place in 1989 by means of the Asociación Alavesa de Productores Artesanos de Txakoli - Arabako Txakolina Elkartea, an Association of Handcrafted Producers of Txakoli of the province of Álava.
Laudio, Amurrio, Okondo, Ayala and Artziniega (towns of the province of Álava) are exclusively integrated in the Guarantee of Origin of Álava, while Orduña participates in the G.O. of Vizcaya.
