Organised by Sagardoaren Lurraldea, the XXX Sagardo Berriaren Eguna 2023 will be held on 11 January to kick off the 2023 txotx season and the long-awaited moment to start enjoying the sagardo berria. This year's guests will be the actors Aitziber Garmendia and Jon Plazaola.

In this thirtieth edition, the moment of the day corresponds to the opening of the txotx held at the Alorrenea cider house in Astigarraga, when after the announcement of "Gure Sagardo Berria" by Aitziber Garmendia and Jon Plazaola, the 2023 txotx season will be opened.

Beforehand, they will take part in the planting of a new apple tree in the Sagardoetxea apple orchard, a symbolic act as a sign of the dynamism and renewal of nature, which year after year offers us the chance to sit around a table and the sagardoa (cider).
