|Wine maker notes
|Gurutzeta Cider House, located in the Ergobia neighborhood of Astigarraga, is a family-run business that has been dedicated to making cider since the end of the 19th century.
In 1979 Jose Goñi Urreaga began modernizing the cider house, installing new presses, building a new bodega and automating the work.
In 1989, José Goñi's son, José Angel Goñi, took over the family business and started the process of professionalizing it.
He added stainless steel barrels, new cooling techniques to control the fermentation process and he began to adopt new techniques to market our cider.
Our cider can be defined as a natural product that is produced with modern technologies used to serve tradition.
Our benchmark product is GURUTZETA. It should be served cool but never cold, at temperatures around 10-12ºC (50-53.5ºF). It should be poured from a height of about 20-30 cm (8-12 in) into a tall and wide glass made of fine crystal. This sets off the "txinparta", where the carbonated bubbles burst and quickly disappear. The glass should be filled until it measures 3 fingers and the cider should be drunk right away.
