The Gassltörrgelen in Klausen has a long tradition
Where does actually this old custom comes from? It is believed that the Törggelen emerged from autumnal wine tasting that good neighbors made in our region in their cozy stube than in the cold cellar. “Torggl” anyway comes from the Latin (torculus) and means nothing more than grape press.
