Sagardo Apurua 2018


"Sagardo Apurua", the reconstruction of an old cider cellar farmhouse in the center of Donostia. A historical recreation of a cider house with typical Basque farm aesthetics in which the ambience and appearance of the former cider houses and Basque farms in our city are staged. Donostia has been the capital of cider for many centuries: the Old Town of Donostia had more than 100 cider houses. The term "Sagardo Apurua" is an old concept that was used to invite people to taste the new cider in the same cider houses before the begining of the new season.
