LA SIDRA.- In previous years this espicha (traditional cider meeting) was organized by the cider mills of Selected Apple, companies that in 2017 announced their incorporation to the Denomination of Origin and that this past harvest they already presented their products. So, now, the event is organized by the Sidra de Asturies Protected Designation of Origin in collaboration with the Sandra Ibarra Foundation for Solidarity Against Cancer. The objective is to raise funds to promote the School of Survivors.
The espicha will be held on September 14 at the Llagar de Castañón in Quintueles. To note that, by the way, he has been the winner of the last Villaviciosa Natural Cider Contest. “A whole party around Asturies Cider and with an extremely important objective: to promote the New School of Survivors”. This is how the participating organizations are defined and assure that it is the fruit of the collaboration agreement that the Asturies Cider maintains, in which the 31 PDO llagars participate together with 322 producers and the Sandra Ibarra Foundation.
