Marling and wine has of course been a part of life in Marling ever since it was introduced to the area several hundred years ago. Evidence is everywhere to be found: for example, records exist from the 12th century relating to wine duties [the wine tithe]. Another example: the irrigation canal with the typical “Waalweg” path that runs from Töll to Marling, dates back to 1756 and was built by the Carthusian monks of the Senales Valley as access to their wine estate in Marlengo.
A great start! From the village centre, the WineCulturePath leads along quiet village streets via the Meran Burggräfler wine co-operative and the numerous wine farms of Mitterterz in a loop back to the village (distance: 4 km). Along the way you can find information panels about the history and culture of wine, as well as giant-size items used in winegrowing: a Reber (vine knife), a Moster (pounder) and a Pazeide, an ancient wine and measuring vessel on the village square.
