Asnāte Ziemele – Latvian Country Tourism Association & Baltic cider network

In 1993, Asnāte established the Latvian Rural Tourism Association. The association is involved in
Eurogites, which is the European rural tourism association, and in ECEAT, which is the association for
ecological and agricultural tourism in Europe. She also represents the Baltic Cider network.
The Baltic region is home to many apple orchards, no wonder cider has quickly become one
growing culture there.
Several initiatives have been launched such as the Baltic Cider Awards to recognize the quality of ciders
produced in the Baltics and celebrate together with professionals the variety of flavors offered by
the pages from this part of the world.
