Törggelen Outings

“No people has succeeded in building up a culture of the kitchen and the table without the culture of wine.” - Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

The Isarco-Eisack Valley is the birthplace of the tradition of the Törggelen outings – hiking up to a farmhouse to enjoy grilled pork, roasted chestnuts, and just-fermented wine. This old tradition arose when the new wine was tasted by farmers and wine merchants between early October and early December. And at the Röck Estate Winery, this tradition has been right at home for a very long time. Along with the year’s new wine or also 750ml bottles from prior vintages, typical dishes and the farm’s own products are served. And no typical Törggelen evening at the Röck Estate Winery would draw to a close without a shot of schnapps or grappa. Konrad Augschöll discovered the passion and tradition of schnapps distilling many years ago, and he has made it a reality with an adventurous spirit.
