Törggelen - a tradition in South Tyrol
Enjoy a comfotrable lunch or dinner with the new wine and chestnuts
"Törggelen" is an ancient farmer's and wine dealer's tradition. Between the beginning of October and the beginning of Advent the "new", "young" wine is tasted. Nowadays, Törggelen is a cosy get-together with culinary pleasures. Typical for "Törggelen" is the sweet must and the young wine, barley soup and Tyrolean ravioli filled with spinach and curd cheese as a starter, and roast chestnuts, nuts and sweet doughnuts for dessert. In ancient years the main course mainly consisted of bacon and smoked sausages or simple dishes from farmer's cuisine. Nowadays, you get great meat platters with boiled pork, sausages, Sauerkraut cabbage and Tyrolean dumplings.
The term "Törggelen" comes from "Torggl", which describes the wine press.
