As every year, after the apple harvest that starts in September, its crushing and extraction of the must, it has already been transformed into cider in our Gurutzeta ciderhouse. Therefore, the different wines are peacefully evolving in the 'upelas' or vats of the cider house, in Astigarraga.
Now, in the middle of Christmas, we would have had to carry out several activities that we have been celebrating for more than two decades, such as the traditional 'Apurua' or the first cider tasting among the neighborhood, friends and friends, as well as the food and mus de Three Kings Eve among the longtime clientele. But, as everyone knows, due to this fateful year of COVID-19, we have been forced and forced to suspend everything. The cider, for its part, must be fermented a little more in the cellar of the sagardotegi; we are in it.
And in this situation we find ourselves, with the cellar full of cider and waiting for the new year to bring us good news: the opening of the 2021 txotx, in particular. Will it be possible? Can we carry it out? In Gurutzeta ciderhouse, of course, we have it clear: as soon as we are allowed, we will open the doors of the cider house. But, for now, we have to wait ... We will inform you! Happy New Year despite everything!
