'Oldest cider cellar.'
Between Enns and the Strudengau, behind the right shore of the Danube, lies the Mostviertel, the Cider Region. Most means cider as well as juice. Herber Most is cider, but forget about the dry apple beer as we know it. Herber Most is refreshingly acid with a velvety aftertaste, has no bubbles and is made for 2/3 from pears. Süßmost is the unfermented juice of both apples and pears. The oldest Mostkeller (cider cellar) can be found below Gasthof Oismühle in Oismühle, 30 km south of the Danube. Photo Paul Smit.
