One of the six specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Burgenland. Restructuring took place in 2016 with changes to the designations and area boundaries. The former name Südburgenland was replaced by Eisenberg. The new name was chosen because the "ü" could have a disruptive effect when exporting and "Eisenberg" was already the name of the traditional wine-growing region in the past. From the 12th century onwards, the Cistercian monastic order in particular contributed a great deal to the development of viticulture here. After the phylloxera catastrophe, the Uhudler speciality was born here at the beginning of the 20th century.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
