If it happens to you to see a bunch of flowers on the threshold of an Altoatesina house do not hesitate and enter and ask for the new wine: this is the Törggelen, a farm custom that was current use after the harvest, when the work in the fields was finished and the farmers had time to move or to rest. During this period they visited their relatives and neighbours to taste "Sußer", the must, or "Nuier", the new wine, gone with speck, "Köstn" (roast chestnuts) and the typical bread, which is diffrent from place to place. Traditionally this is the moment when you join with the others, in happiness. Nowadays the tradition repeats from the end of September until the firt days of November.
