Pannonhalma-Sokoróalja

The vineyard in the northwest Hungary lies at the border triangle near the borders Austria and the Slovakia at the foot of the Bakony Mountains. In 996 came the monastic order of the Benedictine in the area, built a monastery and also started with a cultivated viticulture. This tradition is continued in today's monastery vineyard. The climate is characterized by moderately warm summers and mild winters. The vineyards on loess and brown forest soil cover about 750 hectares. The most important grape varieties are Cserszegi Füszeres, Chardonnay, Olasz Rizling (Welschriesling), Irsai Olivér, Királyleányka, Ottonel Muskotály, Rajnairizling, Rizlingszilváni and Füszeres Tramini. Well-known producers are Pannon Borház and Pannonhalmi Apátsági Pince (monastery winery Pannonhalma).
