Törggelen in South Tyrol

Roasted chestnuts and young wine – South Tyrol's favorite custom

Each year at the beginning of October, the Törggelen season begins in South Tyrol/Südtirol. Young and old come together in quaint wine taverns, wine cellars, and guesthouses to enjoy traditional meat platters with dumplings and smoked meat, roasted chestnuts, and the first new wine, the Sußer.

Each year at the beginning of October, the Törggelen season begins in South Tyrol/Südtirol. Young and old come together in quaint wine taverns, wine cellars, and guesthouses to enjoy traditional Schlachtplatten (meat platters) with Knödel (dumplings) and smoked meat, roasted chestnuts, and the first new wine, the Sußer. Originally, the Törggelen was a cozy wine tasting among local vintners at harvest time. 

The custom remains a favorite, as shown by the Keschntriggl event series. At the heart of the Chestnut Days (Kastanientage) in the villages of Tesimo/Tisens and Prissiano/Prissian is the chestnut from the area, which is said to be the finest and most delicious in the region. Farmers prepare this unusual nut in numerous variations, including as Kastanienherz (chestnut hearts) and chestnut strudel. The term Keschntriggl also designates a device made from chestnut wood, which is used to free roasted chestnuts from their shells.
