The vintners' association was founded in 1994 by seven winemakers from the municipality Gols in the Burgenland wine-growing region Lake Neusiedl (Austria) founded. The main goal is to establish a Burgenland appellation with typical regional 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"). Every year, every Pannobile farm produces its own maximum of one red and one white wine cuvée Pannobile from its own grapes. Each producer uses only high-quality grapes physiological maturity from 100% native grape varieties, pay attention to extreme yield reduction and operates gentle aging in wooden barrels.
The preferred white varieties are Pinot Blanc ( Pinot Blanc ) and Chardonnay, supplemented by Pinot Gris ( Pinot gris ) and Neuburger, the preferred red wines Zweigelt (Capitals), Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, It is decided by strict tasting, whether a wine may be marketed as Pannobile. He must correspond to the mirror image of the varieties used, the soil and the special small climate of the locations in Gols, reveal the unique handwriting of the winemaker, as well as the Pannobile-style correspond. These three criteria must be answered unanimously by all members with "yes".
