Dialectal, Swabian term for a winegrower (wine grower) from the lower town of Tübingen (federal state of Baden-Württemberg). This expression has become known mainly through the Gôgen jokes. The Gôgenwitz usually refers to the harsh reactions of this native peasant population to excessive belief in progress and complacent, overly scientific behaviour in the university town of Tübingen, or often to the rivalry or tensions with the neighbouring town of Reutlingen. The term "caterpillars" has a similar meaning to "Gôgen", but usually refers to all Tübingen's vine growers (even if they do not live in the lower town). Sierhe also under customs in viticulture.
