About Urbitarte Sagardotegia
Artisans of natural cider, Urbitarte is a traditional family owned cider house located in the heart of the Goierri, surrounded by the Aralar Mountains in the Basque Country. Every part of the production process is done manually providing a product that is natural, unique and extraordinary.
In 1991 Demetrio Terradillos and Itziar Irastorza opened the Urbitarte cider house. Back then they had five barrels and 16,000 liters production each year. Even though they hadn’t got an apple press in the place, their idea always was to produce cider with local apples grown in the Basque Region.
In 1993 they acquired more barrels and enlarged the dining area. The cider house has changed since then, but the dining area maintained its essence and size. Instead of outsourcing the cider production, they obtained a new apple press. Since then, the way of making cider has changed considerably, but the apple is still the main focus of their product. Every year their production had increased, and today the production has risen to 150,000 liters.
In 2006 the construction of the new building was finished, and today is where the production and bottling are done.
