Sagardo Forum

November 21-22-23-24-25, 2019
Workshop about apple, cider and tourism

Organised by Sagardoaren Lurraldea, the 3rd SAGARDO FORUM, a technical workshop dedicated to the apple, apple derivatives and the culture and tourism of cider, will take place from 21st-25th November 2019.

The workshop will include technical talks by national and international professionals on 21st and 22th November at Orona Ideo’s facilities (see location on Google Maps), giving us an overview of the current situation and the evolution experienced by the cider sector over recent years, with a focus on 3 core topics: apple, cider and cider houses as a tourist resource.

The 3rd SAGARDO FORUM will also hold the II International Cider Competition on 23th November at Kursaal Congress Center (see location on Google Maps), where prestigious tasters from all over the world (sommelier, winemakers, chefs, journalists, gastronomy bloggers, etc.) will try different types of cider, classified in 9 categories, and choose the best ones as the winners: natural basque cider, natural Asturian cider, traditional french cider, traditional english cider, modern ciders, “premium” carbonated ciders, apfelwein, flavoured cider and perry and ice ciders.

New to this edition, the 3rd SAGARDO FORUM will celebrate an International Cider Fair on 24th and 25th November at Kursaal Congress Center (see location on Google Maps). This fair is aimed to professional public and general public and there will offer the possibility to taste different types of cider in the stands of cider producers.

Over the course of four days, the 3rd SAGARDO FORUM will bring the most relevant professionals and experts in each of the topics of this edition together in the cider territory. The event is undoubtedly a magnificent occasion to learn from other business backgrounds and experiences, to fully understand the current state of the world of cider, and to find inspiration as we build Sagardoaren Lurraldea, a unique territory with great history, tradition and standing in the world of wine tourism, as a tourist destination.

We look forward to seeing you.
