REGION: Basque Country
Cider has been produced at the same farmhouse in Astigarraga by members of the Astarbe family for close to five centuries. Their devotion to both tradition and innovation (they produce both classic and Champagne-method ciders) have earned them berths at Michelin-star tables in Spain and fans abroad.
Roca Altxerri is named for the Altxerri Cave, located in the Basque country, which is home to the oldest stone paintings in Europe, dating back almost 40,000 years. Two sustainably grown (using organic and biodynamic methods), hand-harvested hectares are planted on seaside hills.
