It is estimated that there are 150 'llagareros' in Villaviciosa that produce homemade cider.
The Councilman of Culture of the Ilmo. Villaviciosa City Council, Juan Ramón González González, invited the media to the presentation of the VIII Homemade Cider Contest of the municipality of Villaviciosa the 14 of August at 12 hours at the City Hall of Villaviciosa.
The contest was born as a modest initiative to recognize the production of domestic and family cider, a practice deeply rooted in the council and of singular quality.
Today the contest is consolidated as an initiative within the framework of activities promoted by the City of Villaviciosa, in collaboration with various entities and individuals, aimed at the enhancement of the apple and cider, identity products for excellence, as well as economic resources .
