Vineyards by public transport

I'm going to be in San Sebastian later this summer and I'd quite like to visit a vineyard in the area. We will have a car, but obviously driving to a vineyard is not the best idea if I want to try the wine! Can anyone recommend one that's accessible by public transport or on foot?

Well, "in the area" is a wide area. Do you want to visit the Rioja wine region (almost a two hour drive on a car) or you´d like to visit the Txakoli (Basque-generally white- wine) close to San Sebastian (half hour drive)? Also, expect to visit one winery in the morning and another one in the afternoon, visits in Rioja take around one-two hours per winery.

There´re no wineries on an "on foot" reach from San Sebastian, unless any neighbour has a small vineyard on the backyard of his house.

In the area of San Sebastian, so the Txakoli ones would be ideal if there are any that can be reached by public transport.

Getaria would be your best option, a well known Txakoli winery is Txomin Etxaniz, you can get to Getaria by bus...but then you´d have to take a taxi from there. txominetxaniz.com/en/visit-us/visit-winery-t… Txakoli wineries are not as spectacular as those in Rioja and are much smaller, but the wine is very good. There are more options in the area, but as far as I know not by a bus or train stop, you´d always have to walk or take a taxi.

A complete list of Txakoli vineyards around this area can be found here: getariakotxakolina.com/en/bodegas-degustacio…

There is a map so you might be able to find one that is walkable distance from the bus stop in Getaria (or even Zarautz).
