New wines bottled

The new wines of the 2023 vintage have been bottled. With freshness, aroma and typical notes, they promise an exciting drinking pleasure. The delicious Popphof Rosé has a new look; it was bottled in a sustainable bottle made from dark green recycled glass.

Outdoor pool with new roofing

Bathing fun from the beginning of spring to the end of autumn. We have equipped our panoramic outdoor pool with a new, elegant roof. Swimming in our outdoor pool is really fun even on cooler days, in the middle of the vineyards, right next to the Popphof winery.



As a winemaking family with a long tradition, nature and the environment are particularly important to us. With our electric charging station, the photovoltaic system on the roof and a heat pump to heat the outdoor pool, we want to make a useful contribution to sustainability.

Charming winery festival by the pool

The winery festival Weingutfestl at Popphof in Marling was organized with enthusiasm by the young winemaker Katharina Menz in spring 2023. Together with her team, she managed to put together a special kind of wine festival on a small scale. The various white and red wines as well as the new vintages of Popphof quality wines could be tasted in an atmospheric environment. From sparkling, fruity, juicy to body-accentuatingly elegant, this is how the stylish, fine wines from the Marlingen vineyards presented themselves. Visitors from near and far were also able to hear lively live music and enjoy traditional Brettlmarenden.

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.

Wine bottling at the Popphof

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.
