After the grape harvest, the traditional Toerggelen is celebrated in South Tyrol, and therefore also in Caldaro and Termeno.

In late autumn, when the grapes have been delivered at the wineries or deposited in the farmers’ cellars, the bright side of the season starts. 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 Toerggele evenings took place. This word, however, originates from the Latin term “torquere”: wine pressing.
