In Lower Austria's Weinviertel region common dialect term (also Gait) for a wooden trough or slide made of strong posts (boards). This was attached to the side of the reading trolley and passed through the rectangular Schoßkoa-Türl (Gaitloch) near the floor of the press house wall. The grape material then ran over the lap koa to a vat. Before there the further processing took place, for example the pressing of white wine grapes. See also the section on viticultural customs and wine vessels.
