Autumn visitors to the Isarco-Valley in South Tyrol should definitely visit one of the numerous Törggele events. Törggelen is one of the ancient traditions of our homeland. The name itself comes from the Latin "torquere" meaning "to press". South Tyroleans called their wine press “Torggl”, which leads to the name “Törggelen”. From the end of September to November, the entire region offers wine tastings featuring the new wines and delicious local specialities such as barley soup, “Schlutzer”, dumplings, “Surfleisch”, sausages cabbage and roast chestnuts. To make the Törggele experience perfect, we recommend combining a leisurely stroll through Mother Nature’s magnificent autumn colours with the culinary events. One highlight, for example, is the well-known Chestnut Trail, which starts at nearby Lake Varna and passes over the Renon plateau down to the Bolzano basin to the picturesque Castle Runkelstein. The path can be hiked in several stages, 60 km lead past 55 taverns and Törggele inns where you can stop for a bite to eat.
