January marks the beginning of Cider season in Spain!

Cider (the alcholic drink made from the fermentation of apples) is popular and easy to find worldwide. In Spain, there are several regions that make cider, the best known being Asturias, Basque Country, Navarra and La Rioja. 

The northern part of Navarra features a thousand-year tradition of making cider. Every year, mid January begins the cider season with the opening of the kupelas (barrels) and the celebration of the txotx (the opening of the first cider barrels). From that point on the flavors continue evolving until the season ends at the end of May.

Why not take in the festivities in a rural bed and breakfast and enjoy a deliciuos cider-inspired menu: Codfish omelette, a mouthwatering steak, cheese with nuts and quince.... a great plan for the winter!
