Toerggelen

The Toerggelen has got a long tradition in the south of South Tyrol and is still very popular.

In late autumn, when the grapes have been delivered at the celleries or deposited in the farmers’ cellars, the bright side of autumn starts, not only for guests, but obviously also for local farmers.

Toerggelen is an ancient tradition. The term comes from “Torggl“, which was used to define the room in which once upon a time the wine press was stored and where the Toerggelen took place.

In the course of time the Toerggele tradition was seconded into the cosy local taverns.
The Toerggelen includes drinking new wine, eating tasty bread, cheese and delicious bacon, roasted chestnuts, singing and chatting with each other. Also a meat platter is part of a traditional Toerggele dish.
