Nowadays, most of the wineries have made it the central point of their philosophy: how to deal with nature and its fruit.
Since 1691 the Triebaumer family has been resident in the free town of Rust. Wine and wine-growing lies in the long tradition of our family.
Always striving for the world famous Ruster Ausbruch, the winemakers of Rust have honed their skills over centuries and produce an ample variety of other top class nobly sweet wines.
If you were to cast a glimps from Gillesberg or Oberer Wald on the vineyards around Rust and over the lake, you would recognize that this fragmented and unique region has something extraordinary about it.
Particularly in years with much rainfall the noble rot Botrytis cinerea occurs in a foggy late autumn.
From their brilliant onset on, our single vineyard wines Geyerumriss, Gillesberg, Plachen and Oberer Wald have been proverbially the talk of the town. Thus, it´s high time to take a closer look on the cradle of our top wines.
To make it clear right away: We are not a certified organic producer and we don´t act as if. But, we comply with 25 of 26 regulations governing organic winemaking - and that since 1971! Or in some aspects even longer . . .
