The Geopark of the Basque Coast stands between the Bay of Biscay and the Basque mountains inland. You will enjoy a unique landscape with striking rock formations, cliffs and sandy beaches where episodes of the series “Game of Thrones” have been shot. We leave San Sebastian for Zumaia to see one of the most beautiful features of our coast: the Flysch rock formations. You will be able to see the spectacular Geopark of the Basque Coast from a new and not very well-known angle. The fresh air of our Cantabrian sea will be mixed with the aromas of our products, txakoli and cider. We will visit a Txakoli winery, where we will taste this white wine very typical of the Basque coast together with some "pintxos" (snacks) made with local products. The trip continues through the landscape until we reach the Cider House. You will get to know the family that runs it and the steps required to make Basque cider will be explained. You will then taste the product, first in the bottle and then sitting down to a traditional cider house menu. We will later return to San Sebastian so that you can continue to enjoy our land.
- It is recommended to keep the natural cider in a cool place, at about 14-15ºC. At temperatures that are too high or too low, the cider can lose its properties sooner.
- To consume the Basque natural cider, it is recommended to cool it in the refrigerator and take it out 5 minutes before consumption. The ideal temperature to taste it is between 10-13ºC.
- We open the bottle and to serve the cider, we can use the pourer cork that some bottles have or attach a traditional pourer to it.
- We serve the cider at about 15 cm. from the glass, and a little less than the wine glass. We can consume the cider both in a fine and long glass or in a wine glass. The first choice will help us to enjoy a quicker drink, since by pouring it we will have the natural carbon from the cider. In the second one, we will better appreciate the aromas of the product and by serving it at a shorter distance, we will be able to enjoy a more leisurely drink.
