Idyllic Vinum Hotel in Marlengo
Situated nearby the spa resort town of Merano/Meran, the wine-growing municipality of Marlengo/Marling has gained an international reputation as an excellent and romantic holiday idyll, surrounded by verdant countryside. The Vinum Hotel Paradies is managed by the charming Pircher family and enjoys a quiet location. All you need to do is take a good look at the vineyards, planted with different grape varieties, and you’ll understand why this inviting hotel is called “Paradies.” Rosmarie Pircher and her daughter Elizabeth (a certified young sommelier) talk about wines, wine history and South Tyrolean wine culture at regularly held wine evenings, which also include a tasting.
Marlengo is not only where the large Burggräfler Winery is headquartered, but is also home to leading winemakers Andreas Menz (Popphof) and Erwin Eccli (Pardellerhof-Montin), who strongly supports the Pircher family’s passion for wine. The latest product of Marlengo's wine culture is the Marlengo Wine Praline, which is produced in three flavors exclusively at the Hotel Paradies. Culinary specialties include asparagus in the spring, steak weeks in summer and weekly menus dedicated to fish and pumpkin in the fall. Guests are in the best of hands here: the head chef is the hotelier himself, Klaus Pircher, and he meticulously selects all of his products from the surrounding area.
