Once every year, the nine producers select their red wine as a potential candidate for the Red Pannobile. The criteria is very strict; only perfectly ripe grapes from the indigenous varieties Zweigelt, Blaufräkisch and St. Laurent, that grow within the defined Pannobile vineyard sites, may be used. The winemaker can decide whether he or she presents a single varietal wine or a blend of these three designated Pannobile varieties. The unanimous decision to elect the Pannobile wine is made in the final, decisive tasting. This is how a wide and diverse range of wines, that are clearly recognisable as coming from the same family, evolve with each having its own special individual character.
