The K5 Winery, is located outside of Aia, 9km from Zarautz, and is situated 300 meters above sea level. The scenic view from the winery highlights our surrounding 15 hectares descending down towards the Cantabrian Sea, with a backdrop of the ¨ Raton of Getaria ¨and the quaint fishing village of Orio.
The winery was designed by the architects at Alonso & Balaguer. The building is a perfect compliment to the natural landscape while respecting all of its natural surroundings.
Our vineyards, 100% Hondarribi Zuri, grow at 300mts above sea level in mineral rich soils of chalk, limestone, and shale. The Atlantic climate marks a major character, based on the influences of the Bay of Biscay and the altitude, which provides for higher temperature ranges resulting in better aeration and a natural freshness. For maximum concentration of aromas and flavors, the grape production is on trellises framework while grape yields are kept low with averages between 1.5 and 2.0 kg. These factors are what provide an unprecedented personality to "K5" and "K Pilota" that distinguishes it from other wines.
The 2015 vintage was characterized by heavy rainfall and low temperatures throughout Winter and Spring. The Summer also had heavy rainfall, but featured some of the warmest days in our history. These warm temperatures helped assist the grapes to mature. The vintage can be up as a low yield but remarkable quality.
