Törggelen in Eisacktal
Autumn has come and in Eisacktal that means traditional food and new wine - finally it is the season of the Törggelen.
When fall begins people here say that the fifth season is starting, the season when chestnuts and new wine become the real table's protagonists . From the beginning of October to the middle of November restaurants offer to their guests new wine, chestnuts and speck, all matched with the typical south tyrolean dishes. Not to be missed are, after eating, the beautiful romantic walks through the fall colored woods.
