The Törggelen in Parcines

Autumnal delights: chestnuts and wine

No autumn in South Tyrol is complete without the traditional Törggelen, the convivial annual festivity following the harvest. Roast chestnuts and the new wine are the key ingredients throughout the course of these autumn celebrations in South Tyrol. In the traditional inns and taverns the typical Törggelen menu consists of a plate of barley soup, a mixed platter with local sausage and smoked meat, garnished with sauerkraut and dumplings. For dessert, roast chestnuts and stuffed doughnuts are washed down with the new wine, locally known as Suser.

The farmsteads, wineries and taverns celebrating the Törggelen in Parcines/Partschins mainly utilize homegrown ingredients for the traditional platters and the new wine matured in the local cellars. The term Törggelen originates from Torggl, meaning a winepress in German. At the Stachelburg Castle wine cellars, there are guided tours with tastings once a week and an old refurbished wine press is on show.
