And off and away to the Törggelen

When wine culture’s got history.

Wine pleasures in its most original form awaits your when you visit the wine village of Tramin in autumn.Along the South Tyrolean Wine Road the grape harvest bears witness to an ancient yet youthfully fresh custom: the traditional Törggelen. Its origin goes all the way back to thanksgiving and tasting celebrations which the winegrowers once held upon completion of the wine harvest. And the name comes from the word “Torggl”, the wine press.

As was the case back then, today the “Nuie” newly pressed wine gets tasted during Törggelen.And to accompany it you get sturdy dishes like ribs, boiled bacon, cabbage Tirtlan. Sweet “Krapfen” and roasted chestnuts, tasty edible chestnuts from local growth as a dessert are a matter of course as is the fresh grape must.
