Bota Wineskins

Bota wineskins have been used for thousands of years in Spain, a convenient and durable storage device for travelers, shepherds and farmers. There are very few authentic botas left - most are cheap imitations meant as decorations.

True botas are hand made from goatskin. The process takes over 40 steps, from curing the leather to sewing each one together with needle and thread. The result is a wineskin that is tough, watertight and can last for generations

We are proud to offer botas from ZZZ. the premiere bota craftsmen in Pamplona, who for generations have cured and hand-sewn these animal skins. If you are a purist, your choice will be a bota whose interior is coated with pine pitch - it takes more care, but it will last for decades. For a more convenient bota, we offer a latex lined wineskin. It still has the authentic suede goatskin exterior, but it requires on preparation or special care. It all depends how uncompromising you want to be!
