Riesling is a white grape variety which originated in the Rhine region of Germany. It is an elegant, aromatic grape type exuding flowery, almost perfumed aromas along with high acidity.

Pannonhalma Wine Region
The Pannonhalma wine region is a small area in the northern Transdanubium, in Győr-Moson-Sopron around Pannonhalma.
The region produces white grapes almost exclusively. The vineyards cover about 750 hectares. The soil is half-hard loess and brown earth, in some places, there are sandy patches. The wine region is situated in the north-northwestern - south-southeastern line of the Pannonhalma-hills. Its climate is average compared with other Hungarian wine regions. Its average annual temperature is about 15°C and the 2000 sunshine in hours per year is considered good. The annual rainfall is about 600 millimetres.
The tradition of viticulture is closely connected with the Pannonhalma Archabbey. Its founding document is the first which writes about Hungarian viticulture, referring to it as a product of tithe. The Pannonhalma letter of King Saint Ladislaus from 1093 mentions 88 vineyards. The Benedictine monks had a great influence in spreading the viticulture. As a reward, the king put the region’s wine growers under the monks’ authority. According to the document of Albeus, written around 1237, there were 256 wine growing families in the 90 villages that belonged to the Archabbey, and of them, 173 lived in the villages of Pannonhalma-hills.
