Tālava cider factory is located in Gulbene, in the historical farm building of Vecgulbene manor. A manor complex, a hotel, a restaurant and a park have been established next to the factory.
We will be happy to welcome you individually or in groups (up to 60 persons) for excursions and tastings sessions. We'll tell and show what cider is and how it is made, what equipment ensures the production process from an apple orchard to the bottle, and how do we ferment and mature the drinks. After the excursion we will taste at least 7 types of cider, 7-year-old apple brandy from oak barrels (well known as calvados), hot drink (in winter season) and non-alcoholic juices. Along with the cider tasting you will enjoy small snacks.
Price per tour - 7 EUR/person or minimum 40 EUR. For everyone who enjoys non-alcoholic beverages and snacks only, price per visit is 4 EUR/person. For groups of more than 15 people attendance is free for drivers and group leaders (guides).
For small groups of up to 10 people the tasting takes place at a single, served table, while for guests of 11 or more people - in a free atmosphere in the tasting room, serving snacks and drinks on several small tables, allowing you to discuss drinks, cheer crystal glasses and move freely in the room, or, if you prefer, sit bac, relax and enjoy the chilled ciders!

TĀLAVA IN PROJECT •Sidra Ceļš•
The initiative for the creation of the Sidra Ceļš / Cider Route in Latvia was developed by “Lauku ceļotājs, the Latvian Rural Tourism Association'', and by the enthusiastic cider makers, who have come together in a joint project to create and promote cider as a new tourism product of national identity. The Cider Route will allow you to understand the specifics of Latvian cider, introduce you to culinary traditions and cultural heritage in different regions. Learn more here.
The special brochure combines a travel map and cider stories, inviting visitors to learn more about cider making, traditions, styles and tastings not only at us, Tālavas Sidrs cidery, but also with partners and other cider throughout Latvia - LLTA "Lauku ceļotājs ", SIA" Turkalnes muižas klēts ", SIA" Bauņu sēta ", SIA" Jumpravas sidrs ", SIA" Abavas dārzi ", SIA" URTICA ".
In the brochure you will not only get to know the stories of cider makers, learn about the tours and the drinks they create, but you will also be able to use an easy-to-read map to start your journey into the world of Latvian cider!
