Additional information: Visit to Sagardoetxea, the basque cider museum
The museum is divided into three well-defined sections, through which the visitors can get in touch with the apple and cider history, as well as its present situation: firstly, the apple orchard and the press. Secondly, the museum itself, and finally the tasting centre.
We introduce you to the "txotx" so that you can learn in advance the rites and secrets implicit in the tasting at a cider house, among which are the way the glass must be held, how to lean it in order to get some good froth or "txinparta", how to examine and interpret the range of shades in its colour., and to discern its different bouquets.
Lunch at Cider House
We must point out that the Cider House is not a restaurant, but a cellar with its own rules for proper behaviour. Although these are quite simple, they arouse the visitors' curiosity, which makes this custom not only be kept alive, but also to be considered as a unique experience.
The menu consists of a cod omelette, fried cod with green peppers, steak, cheese with quince jelly and walnuts all accompanied with cider in the "txotx" way.
Present
To complete the experience of cider culture, visitors will get a bottle of cider.
