Romanian term or phrase: un cal de vin
Vinul era transportat cu vase speciale, de formă prelungă, fixate şi făcând una cu corpul căruţei, sau pe cai, dacă erau cantităţi mai reduse. De aici a rezultat unitatea de măsură caracteristică zonei – un cal de vin, reprezentând cantitatea de vin ce putea fi transportată cu un cal. De obicei se formau convoaie de câte trei, patru cai, care – unul după altul – pe cărări, duceau moţilor rodul podgoriei XX.
