One of the five specific wine-growing regions in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Burgenland. In 2016, a restructuring took place with changes in the designations as well as the area boundaries. The former name Südburgenland was replaced by Eisenberg. The new name was chosen because the "ü" could be annoying when exporting and "Eisenberg" was already the name of the traditional wine-growing region in the past. From the 12th century onwards, the monastic order of the Cistercians in particular contributed a great deal to the development of viticulture here.
The area stretches south of the Günser Bergland and lies on the border to Hungary. The Pinkatal Wine Route leads from the largest municipality Rechnitz in the north along the border via the municipalities Eisenberg an der Pinka with the vineyards Csaterberg, Hummergraben, Paigl, Reihburg, Saybritz and Szápari, as well as Deutsch-Schützen with the vineyards Bründlgfangen, Fasching, Ratschen and Weinberg to the south. Other municipalities are Badersdorf, Eberau, Güssing, Hannersdorf, Heiligenbrunn (with Uhudler vinotheque), Kohfidisch, Moschendorf (with wine museum and Uhudler vinotheque) and Strem.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
