Törggelen – an antique South Tyrolean tradition

Let’s go Törggelen…

In autumn, when the days grow shorter and nature wears its unique, colourful dress, then in the Isarco Valley the fifth season starts, the traditional Törggele time. We, too, open our taverns in the old farmhouse and offer guests home-made delicacies from the farm and the fields.

Törggelen tradition in South Tyrol

Törggelen is a historic South Tyrolean autumn tradition and includes the tasting of the new wine, called “Nuien”.

The word “Törggelen” derives from the term Torggl (= wine press – torcquere). Previously, the Törggelen season began on St. Martin’s Day (November 11th).

A leisurely walk through the breathtaking and picturesque autumn landscape, past chestnut groves, in the background shining red peaks, and the last rays of sun shining through the old “Keschtnbäume” (chestnut trees) – this is the right time to stop for a bite in cosy tavern.
