New panoramic outdoor pool

Our new outdoor pool is now sparkling in the sun at the Popphof Winery, set amongst our thick and luxurious vineyards. Peacefully lying on a sunbed and soaking in the rays in a light breeze as your eyes wander over the splendid view is in itself a special treat. We wish you happy holidays with us at Marlengo!

A new vintage in the bottle!

Every year, usually in spring when we bottle the wine, the viticulturist Andreas Menz sets up the mobile bottling line and together with his well-trained team packs about 25,000 bottles into cartons that are then stacked up in the warehouse.

WeinGutFest

In 2014, the WeinGutFest – The Viticulturists’ Fair - of Marlengo was held for the first time at the Popphof Winery. Andreas Menz, one of its founders, organized with his team a very special kind of fair during which four Merano-based producers presented their star wines that included sparkling and fruity whites, fascinating rosés, exciting reds and, last but not least, opulent sweet wines. And more: the large crowd of visitors also enjoyed lively music and tasted enticing savoury snacks and tempting sweets. This event, that has become an important element of Marlengo’s wine-making culture, is held alternately at the various local wineries.

Spending a Sunday at the Mountain Farm

On a lovely Sunday in May of 2016, many South Tyrolean ‘masi’ (mountain farms) opened their doors to visitors to showcase their farming activities and their relevance. One of these seven farms was the Popphof in Marlengo where the Menz family welcomed a highly interested public to visit its wine making and fruit growing undertaking and its winery. Obviously, the event was accompanied by food tastings … All of the farms, in fact, offered an array of delicious regional specialties.
