Butte

hod (GB)
hotte (F)
tino aperto, tino di deposito (I)

Name (orally buttn) for the basket, usually carried on the back, for the transport of grapes at the vintage, The names Beschoff, Bütte, Hotte, Legel, Lesebüttel and Logel also differ locally. The jar, which used to be made of wicker or wood and now mostly made of zinc sheet or plastic, holds about 30 to 40 kilograms of grapes, has a larger diameter at the top and tapers downwards. In the past, it was also lined with bad luck. In Franconia, Butte was also a barrel measure for wine with a volume of 40 liters. Today, flat containers are mostly used to prevent the grapes being crushed or injured by its own weight (picture left). See also under capacity measures and wine vessels,
