Törggelen in Valle Isarco

From October until the beginning of the Christmas period South Tyroleans and visitors taste and enjoy the harvested products, especially wine and chestnuts. The ancient tradition of Törggelen in Valle Isarco developed because the farmers thanked those who helped with the harvest with a large feast. The current custom of Törggelen originated in rustic taverns in Valle Isarco.

Törggelen in Valle Isarco means traditional new wine and Suser (grape must before fermentation), Schlutzkrapfen ravioli, barely soup, sauerkraut with local sausages, salted and smoked meat, all kinds of Krapfen deep fried pastry parcels and roasted chestnuts.

The word Törggelen is derived from the Latin word “torquere”, meaning “pressing grapes”.

Businesses that meet the “red rooster” farm assured criteria and offer homemade wine and local chestnuts have come together and formed the initiative “The original Törggelen”. During the Törggelen season they pin a bunch of branches tied together with a red ribbon outside the front door. These bunches are called Buschen. This bunch has always been a symbol for this form of autumn wine drinking. The name of traditional wine taverns, Buschenschank, is derived from it.
