Visit a cave in Cabrales
Several producers open their caves to allow you to get to experience first-hand the spaces where the famous Cabrales cheese is cured. The Cabrales Foundation, in the village of Las Arenas, offers a 40-minute-long guided visit split into two parts. The first takes you into the cave where you can have a look around the rooms while listening to a detailed explanation of the elaboration process, from the moment the milk is collected until when it is decided that the cheese is ready. The second part consists of an audio-visual session providing you with additional information to complete the visit.
Advise on how to pour a "culete", a small amount of cider that is drunk at once
Get yourself into a comfortable position, with your back straight and legs slightly apart in line with your shoulders. Hold the base of the bottle firmly in your right hand. Hold the glass in your left hand, with the index finger and thumb around the glass and the middle finger below. Lift your arm holding the bottle straight above your head, with the tip in front of your forehead. Position the glass in line between your legs and keeping your eyes fixed on the glass, start to incline the bottle little by little, controlling the weight, until the liquid falls over the end of the glass. Guide the glass towards the flow of cider. Pour an amount just enough to be drank in one gulp, called a "culete".
