In 1991 Demetrio Terradillos and Itziar Irastorza opened the Urbitarte cider house. Back then they had 5 barrels and a 16 000 liters production. Even though they hadn’t got an apple press in the place, their idea always was to produce cider with local apples.
In 1993 they acquired more barrels and enlarged the dining area. The cider house changed since then, but the dining area maintained the essence and size.
Instead of outsourcing the cider production, in 1993 they obtained a new apple press. Since then, the way of making cider 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 is done.
Times have changed and technology has improved. But our main character is still the apple.
