UNDERWATER WINE CELLAR: WINES AGED UNDER THE SEA
Savour the results of ageing at sea in the first artificial reef / underwater wine cellar in the world. Wines aged and treasured under the sea to offer you a unique pleasure that only the magic of the sea can provide.
20 metres down, in the stunning setting of the bay of Plentzia, a group of expert enthusiasts for the sea and the world of wine age the finest wines from the Basque Country and other regions.
Find out about this original project, named “Crusoe Treasure”, sail on the bay, see with your own eyes the sea bed and the wine cellar in underwater images and enjoy a tasting of “underwater wine” accompanied by tasty Basque pintxos.
If you’re in Donostia-San Sebastián or want to visit this beautiful city, the pearl of the Cantabrian coast, this experience offers you another possibility: to try an underwater wine in the unique setting of the city’s Aquarium, one of the best in Europe and one of the most popular places to visit in the Basque Country.
