In the 1990's a group of like-minded producers from this special part of winemaking Austria banded together as a community to not only combine efforts to promote their hood and their product but provide a support network of understanding, exchange of ideas and know-how. They took their name for the Roman name for the region "Pannonia". Each year members of Pannobile (9 members currently) independently make a maximum of one red and one white that they put forward to the rest of the group as their Pannobile cuvée for assessment by the other members. They must be 100% indigenous grape varieties and reflect the signature soil and climate of the region. Only wines that are unanimously answered "yes" by the members can then be labelled and sold as a Pannobile wine.
A premium blend of indigenous varieties Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch. Dark and brooding, berry fruits and flint. A real individual expression of place with a nod to the heritage of the region.
Claus works with gut instinct supported by meticulous know-how, biodynamic vineyards, low-tech winemaking and a lot of heart. The wines convey all of this and more in wines of incredible elegance, tension and clarity.
