Wine itself plays an important role in South Tyrol – so tastings of the “Nuier” are obvious.
The Törggelen always goes together with the consumption of sweet chestnuts. In former times, it was also a tasting of the new grape juices. The sweet fruits go perfectly with the grape must or, at the end of October and in November, with the new young wine, called “Nuier” in dialect. While must or “Suser” contains at most 1% alcohol, the new wine already contains 7% or more.
In South Tyrol mostly the red wines are offered as grape must, but both red and white wines are offered as the Nuier.
South Tyrol offers ideal conditions for the growth of the sweet chestnuts and the ripening of the grapes. So all resources for a perfect Törggele evening are available.
