Wine making started in the Pannonhalma-Sokoróalja region when Benedictine monks founded the monastery of Pannonhalma in 996 at the Sacred Hill of Pannonia. Social and political turmoil following World War II made it impossible to continue the centuries old traditions, since both the properties and the winery were taken over by the Communist state. In the ensuing decades, monks living in Pannonhalma did not give up hope of resuscitating their wine-making traditions. Since the fall of Communism in the 2000, the monks have revived the viticultural traditions and the wineries. The facility is designed by the architects of the CZITA Architectural Office based in the city of Győr, in close co-operation with Tibor Gál, the internationally famed winemaker of Eger who oversaw the enological and technical work and was the expert consultant of the Winery.
