WINERIES of the Pannobile Group
Where does the term Pannobile come from, what does it mean and who produces this wine? The term Pannobile refers to an association of winegrowers from Burgenland, Austria, which was founded around 25 years ago. The winegrowers all come from the village of Gols, which lies on Lake Neusiedl.
The name Pannobile is a composition. The area is part of the Pannonian lowlands, hence the first part of the name. Nobile also refers to nobel, because the producers want high quality, origin-related produce and area-typical wines. The Pannobile-Wine is available in red and white. For the red wine, 85% of the grapes must be the native varieties such as Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and Sankt Laurent. For the white wines, the composition of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Neuburger is extremely popular, whereby the cuvée differs depending on the winemaker and vintage. The association tastes each wine with its members and then decides according to their strict criteria as to whether it may be offered under the name Pannobile or not. The winegrowers meet regularly for an exchange of opinions and share their experiences with each other. Who are these nine individualists from Burgenland, who work independently yet create elegant wines rich in finesse with homeland and culture together? They are Paul Achs, Judith Beck, Andreas Gsellmann, Gernot Heinrich, Matthias Leitner, Hans Nittnaus, Gerhard Pittnauer, Claus Preisinger as well as Steffanie and Susanne Renner. These winegrowers themselves say about Pannobile: “Always new, always in front and always different”! The most important thing is that the winegrowers talk to each other and exchange ideas, thus no other better cooperation is hardly imaginable! And how can you tell a Pannobile? You can always recognize Pannobile wines by their “Member of Pannobile” logo on the back label.
