One of the five specific wine-growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing area Burgenland. In 2016 a restructuring took place, including changes in the names and the boundaries of the areas. The former designation Südburgenland was replaced by Eisenberg. The new name was chosen because the "ü" could have a disruptive effect on exports and "Eisenberg" was also the name of the traditional wine-growing region in the past. From the 12th century onwards, the Catholic monastic order of the Cistercians in particular contributed a great deal to the development of viticulture here.

Eisenberg - Eisenberg an der Pinka mit Weingärten

The area extends south of the Günser Bergland and is located on the border with Hungary. The Pinkatal Wine Route runs from the largest wine-growing community of Rechnitz in the north along the Hungarian border through the communities of Eisenberg an der Pinka with the Csaterberg, Hummergraben, Paigl, Reihburg, Saybritz and Szápari vineyards, and Deutsch-Schützen with the Bründlgfangen, Fasching, Ratschen and Weinberg vineyards to the south. Further villages are Badersdorf, Eberau, Güssing, Hannersdorf, Heiligenbrunn (Uhudler community with Uhudler-Vinothek), Kohfidisch, Moschendorf (with wine museum and Uhudler-Vinothek) and Strem.
