Visit to a typical Basque cider house
Get to know the secrets behind the making of the delicious cider and learn how to serve it and taste it like a real Basque.
Cider (called "sagardo" in Basque, meaning "apple wine") is one of the most traditional and timeless Basque drinks. The magic involved in its production (made in traditional Basque farmhouses for centuries) can still be found in the cider houses ("sagardotegis" in Basque). Hernani, a small town where cider culture is shown at its best, references to cider can be found in every street and in every corner.
