Common name in Germany (in the Mosel-Saar area also "sweet Viez") for the apple must after pressing. In southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria, this juice is simply called must (which is also used for freshly pressed juice from grapes) or sweet must. This is the starting product for cider (which is also called "sour Viez"). The word "Viez" (from the Latin vice) means "in place of (wine)", so to speak a "substitute wine".

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
