Törggelen in Autumn in South Tyrol
The traditional Törggelen in the mountain farms of Valle Isarco
The Törggelen that is at its fifth season in Valle Isarco is based on centuries of tradition. Initially it was the farmers’ custom to visit nearby farmhouses to taste the new wine and the harvested produce, and today it attracts tourists from all over the world who come to taste the South Tyrolean specialties in the local rural taverns.
Some of the most popular Törggelen dishes:
sauerkraut, canederli, smoked pork meat, local sausages, assorted boiled meats, blood sausage, schlutzkrapfen, roast chestnuts and tasty krapfen, and quite often potato fritters stuffed with sauerkraut.
Add to this the new wine, locally called ‘Süßer’ (non-fermented new wine).
The best way to enjoy this occasion is by sipping the wine as you admire the explosion of autumn colours that Nature puts on display – all the more enjoyable when visiting the taverns on foot.
