After the harvest, bathed in the autumn colours, the wine cellars and taverns of the farms in theVenosta Valley are opened to the public for the traditional Törggelen
, one of the most festive traditions in the local cultural calendar. For the duration of the event, the so-called Schlachtplatte
is served first on the menu complete with sausag and dumplings, accompanied by sauerkraut roast chestnuts garnishings. The sumptuous meal ends with the characteristic Tyrolean ‘krapfen’ doughnuts. The food is paired with the local young wine, known as the Susser
, completing the traditional Törggelen in the Venosta Valley.
The Fischerstube at Prato allo Stelvio
organizes wonderful Törggelen evenings at Prato allo Stelvio or in the tavern at the medieval Tschenglsburg Castle
. Here, only local produce supplied by farmers
in the area is utilized, such as the aromatic chestnuts from Corces/Kortsch or the sumptuous sauerkrauts from Lasa
