Čejč – dragon holes colonists form Čejč under the mountain

The town with a medieval market law and the right to brew and sell beer suffered extensive damage during the Hussite Wars in the mid-15th century were abandoned. In establishing new communities in the 18th century the village was inhabited again and partly by the French population from small villages around the city of Besancon. Moved by the fate of the settlement was not favorable for the development of winery, vineyards in Cejc historical papers are often mentioned as deserted. The interruption of wine growing links with older period is the fact that the resettlement estates were modest vineyard area planted in new lines.

The cellar alley

Already beginning of the 19th century shows the order plot in the valley below the village Municipal colony 24 vineyards wine either. Their shape and location in a narrow valley between hills of vineyards and gross Ždánských describes municipal Chronicle in 1932 by Alois Pokluda čejčský teacher: "In the picturesque mountain kotlince been more than 13 ° on both sides of the flights dirt track 3O wine cellars, after our bud, which čejčským colonists belonged. They were built from kotovic (adobe), appliquéd with thatch roof, the roof structures in the hay. The wine cellar consists of two parts. Above ground, ie the kennels (mill), from which the passage leads downwards called sewing. This was originally deficits and walking on a clay soil especially in muddy boots were quite dangerous. Neck finishes door, behind which is an earthen cellar, inlaid cihlama. The door to the basement closed to the wall, simple but very ingenious way of a wooden castle. Also key to the two stem weevil was of wood. Open such a lock could usually only economic, and rarely housekeeper. " A small vineyard began in the late 19th century and waned devastating phylloxera also regularly used either. "Dragon Hole", as these buildings were jokingly called, at the time kronikářova write only twelve. Gradual recovery to ensure čejčského wine chart a new course under the mountain, which also led to the construction of new mills and cellars.

Things to do - Well, the drink with us

Vintage and life in the 20th čejčských búdách the last century, captured the town in the Memorial book Čejč Alois Pokluda concisely: "The day is a vintage children and adults a half holiday, so dress pěkněji other than farm work. Take a bucket down the house, baskets and sharp crooks. Loaded on a car groomer Kadečka or barrels, tubs takes with braces, and mestůvku Cube - cherry branch that is growing at the end of the three branches, cut the following to be the same length and cube tearing the grapes used in the tub before pressing. Wine in the fermenting container cutter called for its sharp flavor. At that time, the basement filled with gases that threaten human life, as happened in Čejkovice. We remember a similar misfortune. Fermented wine is blocked and after Christmas, Kohútka scrolls yeast into another container. In addition to wine They made our ancestors, "Grulich." The dregs poured water přisladili and trod again. Good wine is the pride of the winemaker. On Sunday afternoon in winter and early evening of everyday life, they go either to their winemakers. In sotůrku bear strong element slice of bread and a piece of him Husino, smoked double chin, or scratchings dandulu (sausage) to make a good drink. Volávají neighbors to meetings, to assess the quality of the wine and desserts. Guests sit down to real or improvised bridges, stretches economic skeletons wine fills the cups and served it, saying, 'Well, Write to be with us', then a guest toasting, Give God put our health! 'Young man toasting the girl, saying,' At thy beauty, 'whereupon she said to him:' I am a honest! '"In the vineyards and cellars below the mountain village wine tradition alive today. Kotovice as a building material either replace the original clay bricks and the number of new buildings completed either in the colony on 97th He replaced the generations are no longer certain habits and disappeared courteous greetings. Technique and technology replace hard work, vintage, however, ceased to be a half holiday. Only the rhythm of work in the vineyard and the cellar remains the same. And did not change too Esterková mill and adjacent ground cellar, whose graceful shapes dominate the middle part of the colony for almost two hundred years.
