Relaxed autumn vacation accompanied by chestnuts and wine

The Törggele period in South Tyrol begins as soon as almost all grapes have been harvested and the vine leaves turn golden yellow. So, if you are spending your vacation in South Tyrol between October and November, Törggelen is an enjoyable must-do. This old custom is an integral part of South Tyrolean culture. It is not only the good food and drink that makes these evenings so popular, it is the whole atmosphere. The comfortable sitting together with friends and family, laughing, celebrating, making music and enjoying. The Törggelen looks back on a long tradition. In the past, after the wine pressing in autumn, farmers and wine merchants used to meet to taste the fresh wine. The popular custom is as much a part of it as the chives in the bacon dumplings. Barley soup, “Schlutzkrapfen”, bacon, smoked sausages, cheese and farmer's bread or meat dishes with home-made sausage, spareribs, smoked meat and sauerkraut, all homemade of course. For dessert there are sweet deepfired "Krapfen" and "Keschtn" - roasted chestnuts. The guests drink sweet, not yet fermented grape juice ("Sußer") and later young wine ("Nuier"). Also in the Schenna Resort the popular tradition is celebrated during the Törggele time.  From 25.10. - 08.11.2020 the resort guests can participate in the Törggele weeks. In this special offer week the last days full of autumn sun are well spent with a Törggele afternoon in the vineyard and a comfortable autumn hike with the host and hiking guide Heidi Pfötl-Wörndle. In addition, upon arrival the resort guests receive a bottle of Vernatsch Valpitan from our own winery "Pföstl", a guided tour of the winery with wine tasting in the rock cellar and a SPA grape bathing experience for two.
