Irouleguy or other Basque Wine area

Has anyone visited wineries in Irouleguy? There is a great NY Times article about this small region and was hoping for some more specifics if anyone has visited particular places.

I will be in San Sebastian for several days and have already visted Rioja before. Is this region worth it?

Thank you!

  1. It maybe better to post this on the French board as Irouléguy are from Pays Basque in France. I have toured the countryside on both sides of the borders, but not the wine area specifically, and its a great area to sample fantastic local produce. One think is I didn't notice that many vines, or at least that many compared to the bigger regions like Languedoc or Rioja.
