High peaks were being strongly eroded, and material from the mountains was being washed into the Pannonian sea, filling it intensively.
The subsequent erosion of all the diverse sediments from different ages created hundreds of small rounded hills with mineral-rich, warm, and nutritious soils along the shores of the former sea - a nightmare for civil engineers who build roads in the region, but ideal winegrowing country.
An abundance of sunny days sometimes causes droughts, but the hot winds rolling off the Pannonian plain are moderated by the cool eastern spur of the Alps that also shields the region from the harsh northern weather.
