The winegrowers' association was founded in 1994 by seven winegrowers from the community Gols in the Burgenland wine region Lake Neusiedl (Austria) founded. The main goal is to establish a Burgenland appellation with local wines. The name comes from a geographical point of view, because the area is part of the Pannonian Plain (the Roman name of the province was "Pannonia"). Each year, each pannobile company produces its own grapes and a maximum of one red and one white wine pannobile cuvée. For this, each producer only uses grapes with a high level physiological maturity 100% native grape varieties, pay attention to extreme yield reduction and carries out gentle aging in wooden barrels.
The preferred white wines are Pinot Blanc ( Pinot Blanc ) and Chardonnay, supplemented by Pinot Gris ( Pinot gris ) and Neuburger, the preferred red wine Zweigelt (Capitals), Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, It is decided through strict tasting whether a wine can be marketed as a pannobile. It must correspond to the reflection of the varieties used, the soil and the special microclimate of the locations near Gols, the unique handwriting of the winemaker and the pannobile style. These three criteria must be answered with a “yes” by all members.
