Abbey Winery Pannonhalma

Magyar | Deutsch

The Benedictine monks, having settled on the Sacred Hill of Pannonia in 996, have always been closely associated with viticulture and wine making introduced by the Romans. At the beginning of the 1900's, the Archabbey had about 100 hectares of vineyards in the direct vicinity of Pannonhalma and it also had plantations on the Somló Hill and in Tokaj-Hegyalja.

The political and social upheaval that followed World War II put an end to the centuries-old tradition when the single-party state confiscated the Abbey's vineyard holdings and winery. During the decades that followed, the monks never gave up hopes of reviving the legacy of excellence one day. Finally, it was 10 years after the Communist rule failed that the plans for rebirth took shape, according to that the Abbey Winery Pannonhalma on a floor space of 2000 m2 and with a storage capacity of 3000 hectolitres was established in 2003 in which the Abbey would control the majority interest in partnership with the MKB Bank as the minority owner.

Without exception, our varietal wines (Tramini, Rajnai Rizling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir) bear the marks of the terroir, thus showing interesting and exciting samples in the world-wide range made of internationally known grape varieties, while our winery also aims at offering unique blends (St. Martinus, Tricollis, Hemina, Infusio) reflecting its peculiarity and message in an authentic way.
