We will start the day visiting a real sheep farm, located near San Sebastian at the foot of Mt. Adarra, to taste and learn about one of the culinary icons of the area, Idiazabal cheese. During the tour, the owner will lead us through the farm and we will learn step by step the process involved creating cheese, from the feeding of the flock to their milking, the cheese making, and the storage of the cheese for their healing in the cold-storage room. Continuing our tour we will make our way to the coast and we will visit a small family owned Txakoli winery to understand the process of making this particular sparkling wine elaborated from a unique vine.
