Opening of the txotx season

See who has opened the txotx season at Petritegi in recent years.

Opening of the Txotx Season on what’s known as the Sagardo Berriaren Eguna is the most greatly awaited event of the year for all sagardozaleak or cider lovers and has been celebrated in Astigarraga since 1994. The main event revolves around opening of the first barrel, something which has been repeated at Petritegi for 18 years, when our cider maker Joaquín Otaño serves an illustrious figure their first glass of cider. From that moment on the unmistakable cry of txotx! can be heard all over our land.
