Old winery tradition in Austria, where the beginning of the vintage was celebrated with firecrackers. So the wine mountains (the hills) are opened up, so to speak. In the past, there was a common reading start valid for a certain area, which was officially announced.

The traditional custom is still used for example in Gumpoldskirchen maintained in Lower Austria. See also under Customs in viticulture,
