Törggelen in South Tyrol

Feldthurns/Velturno, the Capital of Törggelen

The Törggelen Trio: Wine, Chestnuts, and Picked Meats

"Torggl“ – that's what wine presses used to be called in South Tyrol. The name for this old tradition comes from this word. In early October, after the harvest was brought in and the work was all done, the locals could begin Törggelen. The harvested goods could then be enjoyed. The sitting rooms of the farmers are converted into improvised inns. New Wine is served, barley soup, deep-fried pastries, hearty pickled meats, homemade smoked sausage, bacon, and dumplings. Jelly doughnuts and freshly roasted chestnuts (called "Keschtn" in the regional dialect of German) form the meal’s crowning glory.
Here in Feldthurns/Velturno, you’ll find vineyards and entire chestnut groves at altitudes of up to 850 meters above sea-level. The optimal climatic and soil conditions are why this quaint tradition is so popular here in Feldthurns/Velturno. You’ll be hard-pressed to find cozier, more-authentic Törggele inns in all of South Tyrol.

Events Involving CHESTNUTS and TÖRGGELEN:
  • Eisack/Isarco Valley Chestnut Weeks, from Oct. 23 till Nov. 8, 2015
    This will be the tenth annual chestnut event, where everything revolves around this delicious nut.
    The inns from Vahrn all the way up to Ritten will be offering their guests local dishes and chestnut specialties.

  •  The Chestnut Weeks culminate in the  "Keschtnigl" in Feldthurns/Velturno.
    The program includes a symposium on nature walks and the fairy tale hour held in the castle, the Nigl market (where you can purchase country goods and hand-crafted items), market stands, and music. The guided walks will take you through the famous chestnut groves to the Säben Monastery, after which there will be a rest-stop with refreshments.
