Last load of grapes
In order to put symbolically an end to this year’s grape harvest, on Saturday, 12th October 2019, the last load of grapes will be brought on a decorated veteran tractor in the little village near Eppan.
The festival will begin at 11 am and from 2 pm the colorful parade from the Girlaner Street to the church square in the village centre. It will be accompanied by the local band and a number of people wearing historical costumes and carrying old equipment of the grape harvest.
Relic wine press
Observed by the strict "Saltner" – the traditional custodian of the vineyard in Southern South Tyrol – and in the presence of many spectators, the freshly harvested grapes are pressed in an old wine press. Of course, you can immediately taste the grape juice – as well as some good drops of wine of the local wineries, roasted chestnuts, speck rolls and home-made sweet fritters.
After this, from 3 pm there takes place a popular "Törggele" festival organized by the band of Girlan in the historical inn Glögghof. Also, you can enjoy new wine, hot chestnuts and other typical autumn specialities.
