Long Description:
EN: This sign is located at a fountain beside a winegrower's hut in the vineyards of Chlus southwest of Aesch.

The sign should actually say that the water is not drinkable. But "no water for drinkers" is something different, of course. After all, we are in the middle of a vineyard, and the winemaker does not want to go out empty handed. Teetotallers can help themselves here, nobody cares for them.

DE: Dieses Schild befindet sich bei einem Brunnen neben einer Winzerhütte in den Weinbergen der Gegend Chlus südwestlich von Aesch.

Das Schild soll eigentlich besagen, dass das Wasser nicht trinkbar ist. Aber "kein Wasser für Trinker" ist natürlich etwas anderes. Schlliesslich befinden wir uns mitten auf einem Weinberg, da will der Winzer natürlich nicht leer ausgehen. Abstinenzler sollen sich ruhig hier bedienen, die interessieren ja keinen.
