Rustle of colors

Autumn in Eppan

Golden rustles the autumn

Pleasant temperatures, but no more summer heat. Fruit baskets and crates full of fruit. Wine presses in constant use and freshly pressed wine. Autumn is so beautiful in Eppan. Although it must be said that harvest time is an extremely labor-intensive time for farmers. But after months of work in the vineyards and orchards, bringing in what was once harvested is the reward for all the effort. And why don't we, who create day in and day out, also reap a well-deserved break? Autumn is a time of high spirits.

Nature is colorful and exuberant - and makes it easy for us to follow its charms. After the green of summer, yellows and reds take hold. They bathe the vines and forests in a dazzling light, and it's not for nothing that people talk about the golden autumn.

With autumn comes the time of Törggelen. After a beautiful walk through the autumnal landscape, you can stop at South Tyrolean farmers' inns or farms to delight your palate with delicious local products, accompanied by homemade wine. "Törggelen" is an old tradition: the tasting of new wine accompanied by a tasty snack of typical culinary specialties such as sausages with sauerkraut, black bread, speck, smoked meat, cheese etc.
