Term (also Weinstunze or Weinsteize) for a vessel which was formerly used in viticulture for the manual drawing off or decanting of the fermented must from the fermentation tank into a barrel (see under drawing off). These containers with lid and handle were mostly made of wood (pictures left and right) or copper (middle picture, Franconia 17th century). The volume was 1 to 10 litres. Today this is usually done by pumping over. In agriculture the support was also used to collect the milk during milking. See also under wine vessels.
