Sagardo Forum

Workshop dedicated to the apple, cider, culture and tourism

SAGARDO FORUM is a technical workshop dedicated to the apple, apple derivatives and the culture and tourism of cider. Organised by Sagardoaren Lurraldea, is celebrated every two years.

As long as the health situation allows it, the fourth edition of Sagardo Forum will be held at the end of November 2021.

The Sagardo Forum will include conferences by international professionals with a focus on 3 core topics: apple, cider and cider houses as a tourist resource. Also, Sagardo Forum will celebrate the International Cider Competition, where prestigious tasters from all over the world (sumillers, winemakers, chefs, journalists, gastronomy bloggers, etc.) will try different types of cider, classified in 9 categories, and will choose the best ones as the winners: natural basque cider, natural asturian cider, traditional french cider, traditional english cider, modern cider, “premium” carbonated cider, apfelwein, flavoured cider and perry and ice cider. Apart from that, will celebrate an International Cider Fair to discover and taste cider from all over the world. Soon will be available detailled information abouth the event.

Over the course of Sagardo Forum, the most relevant professionals and experts in each of the topics will be 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 will wait for you!
