Törggelen

From September to December

During this occasion, the farmers welcomed the people in their own homes to offer wine they produce. To celebrate the harvest period, they were put on banquets full of various typical products of the fall season.

The name of this custom comes from the Latin "torquere" which means pressing. It is a clear reference to the clusters of grapes was pressed in the cellars.

It is believed that the Törggelen originates in the Valle Isarco.
