    • In an authentic cider house of producers, unique in the Basque Country, come and discover the Sagarno (apple wine), the oldest drink in the Basque Country and the whole tasting ceremony: the TXOTX !!

      Understanding the culture of the Sagarno means entering the heart of the Basque Country. You can taste other apple-based drinks with or without alcohol, produced at the cider house. A great moment for children : apple juice served with Txotx!

      And why not extend the visit with the famous Txotx meal! Typical of Basque cider factories.

      On the menu : pintxos (tapas), rib of beef, gambas, duck breast, vegetarian plate, all grilled on a charcoal grill, in the dining room, in front of you!

      All the products of Txopinondo® are produced in a traditional way, respecting authentic know-how.

      April to October : Monday to Saturday from 10:30 am to 12 pm and from 3 pm to 7 pm.

    In normal times, I would have given this place 4 stars: the food is basic but nice, the "apple wine" is enjoyable, the price is a little high for what you get, but OK. The staff are friendly and helpful, but have absolutely no control over people moving from the tables to cider barrels with no masks on. Some people even came in with no masks at all and were shown their table as if the situation were totally normal. Not good for a place that has no tables outside. If I were the owner, I would suspend the "txox" (cider fetching) sessions and serve people at the table, rather than have them all get up and walk through the room to the barrels. Also, I would ask people to simply abide by the law and wear masks on getting up from their tables. There's a good reason behind this.

    This was truly one of the high points of our 2 week trip, traveling with 9 of us in the family, from Chicago and Madrid. The owner was delightful and so knowledgeable. All enjoyed trying the various ciders.. The young people particularly enjoyed the variety. And the food was fabulous! We'll remember this experience for a very long time, and are so grateful to the team.

    I visited as part of a large group that almost filled the large "cidrerie". Our host was charming, kind and pleasant; there was enough T-bone to feed a lion and the cidrerie is simply striking. The...
