Instead of the name Äppler , restaurants and smaller manufacturers may instead call the beverage Schoppen or Schoppe , which actually refers to the measure of the glass. In the Frankfurt area, berries from the service tree Sorbus domestica may be added in small quantities to increase astringency ,  in which case the specific type of Apfelwein is called Speierling.
In modern times, the term Speierling is often also used to refer to any more sour variety of Apfelwein, even if it lacks any juice of the service tree. Apfelwein is made from pressed apples.
It can be made with the addition of the unprocessed juice from the fruit of a small, indigenous tree known as Speierling Sorbus domestica or Speyerling , an endangered species that is easily confused with the wild apple. Apfelwein is mainly produced and consumed in Hesse where it is the state beverage , particularly in the Frankfurt , Wetterau , and Odenwald areas. It is also found in Moselfranken, Merzig Saarland , and the Trier area, as well as the lower Saar area and the region bordering on Luxembourg.
Several large producers are located in these regions, as well as numerous small, private producers which use traditional recipes.
Some of the most famous restaurants where Apfelwein is served are in Sachsenhausen Frankfurt am Main. Some of these regions have regular cider competitions and fairs, in which the small, private producers participate.
Cider songs are composed and sung at these events. Apfelwein is served in a Geripptes , a glass with a lozenge cut that refracts light and improves grip—a holdover from the past, when some meals were traditionally eaten without cutlery. Most establishments also serve Apfelwein by the Bembel a specific Apfelwein jug , much like how beer can be purchased by the pitcher in many countries.
The paunchy Bembel made from salt-glazed stoneware usually has a basic grey colour with blue-painted detailing. In the Eifel region, near Hunsrück, around Moseltal, along the lower Saar and in Trier, the drinking container is called Viezporz and consists of white porcelain or stoneware. Hot Apfelwein is commonly taken as an old household remedy against colds, or as a warming beverage in the cold season.
An annual Viez Fest is celebrated in Merzig. The date is usually the second Saturday in October. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.
