His wife, Anjelita Garin Iraola (Hernani-Txonkuene, 1931) remembers how it was the father, her father-in-law, who taught her to bottle. Their son, on the other hand, Joxe Angel Goñi Garin (Ergobia-Gurutzeta, 1957) evokes the time when cider was made in his great-grandfathers farmhouse in Astigarraga, named Largaene, to remember that the family has been linked to the elaboration of cider since the 19th century.
