On Saturday and Sunday couples in traditional costume and the popular Saltner will stroll through the town centre as walking contemporary witnesses of the harvest and wine culture - a welcome opportunity to marvel, admire and take photographs.
What is a "Saltner"?
The Saltner protected until the '60s the ripe grapes from thieves. Mostly living in a simple dwelling in the vineyard, the Saltner wore chains of animal teeth and cloaks of consecrated coins, crosses and fox tails. Colorful feathers on his hat should frighten humans as well as animals.
