We will start the tour visiting the Sagardoetxea (Cider Museum) where they explain how and when performing the apple harvest , how to perform the pruning of apple , what tools were used in ancient times to make cider, how it is made today etc
After the guided tour you can taste different "pintxos" and drinks and liqueurs made with apple.
And after the museum visit we will go in a walk to a typical Cider House, living the EXPERIENCE of the cider.
The cider season, as it is popularly called, starts in January until well into May. At this time of year, all have their cider production in the barrels ready to be drunk with the typical cider house menu.
