Guzman Riestra Sidra Natural Asturias (700ml)

Guzman Riestra Sidra Natural Asturias (700ml)

"A natural, dry, unfiltered Spanish cider produced and bottled by Guzmán Riestra Riestra, Sariego, Asturias. Traditional still cider with fruity aromas and the characteristic acidity of Spanish and French apples that demands pairing with cured cheese and meats. It is natural for traditional sidras to have a bit of sediment." Importer notes

Our first cider press was made in 1906, and its making has been passed on to us as an endearing anecdote. At the beginning of the last century Robustiano Riestra cut down a large tree, probably a eucalyptus, which was transported by two Asturian traditional carts to his house in Santa Olaya de Baldornón (Gijón), where he built a beam press. Don Robustiano already marketed under the brand name RIESTRA and he even owned a store in the popular district of El Llano in Gijón in the early years of the last century. Some years later, the company passed into the hands of his daughter Mrs. Etelvina Riestra who moved to the neighbouring municipality of Sariego when she got married to Ricardo Riestra Hortal, where a new stage of the making of our cider began. Working in those times was hard, laborious and very demanding, as they did not enjoy the technological advances which are available to us today. In 1947 a new cider cellar was built which meant both a major modernization and also a considerable increase of the production and the trading transactions. In 1985 Guzmán Riestra Riestra took over management of the company, who, in turn, passed the baton to his sons Raúl and Ruben Riestra, who are currently continuing the work started by their great grandfather, placing this family saga among the most traditional ones of the cider makers’ guild.
