Frankfurt Apple Wine Festival

Liquid gold! The annually held Apple Wine Festival is one of the most popular highlights of the Frankfurt events calendar.

Apple Wine

Apple wine has been Frankfurt's beverage of choice for more than 250 years. More than that, it is known as an absolute "cult beverage throughout the rest of FrankfurtRhineMain as well. It is typically enjoyed at the region's rustic apple wine pubs, being drunk from a glass featuring a diamond-shaped pattern and known locally as the "Gerippte", and poured from the so-called "Bembel", a grey earthenware jug with a blue design. This blue-grey jug doubles as the unmistakable symbol of the region's famous apple wine culture.
