The single vineyard "Obere Wald"

„The single vineyard "Obere Wald" stands for Blaufränkisch affinity that has turned into soil". This is a our new saying. The exceptional position of the Oberer Wald is demonstrated by the fact that it is the only vineyard in Rust that slopes entirely to the south. Most of the remaining single vineyards which shape the Rust vineyard arena face eastwards towards the lake.

Cultivated 500 years of Ruster Ausbruch

Ruster Ausbruch is by far the oldest designation of origin and has recently received DAC status. 2018 even brought us two Ruster Ausbruch wines - one of which is a rarity made from 100% Gelber Muskateller.


An unusual name for an unusual vineyard. How Paul Triebaumer turned a site planted with a variety of grape vines into a prime location for Rust's showpiece varieties, whose fruits we can enjoy today.

The Plachen - worth every effort!

Clay, where originally there was none, meandering vines and ampelographic cuckoo eggs. The Plachen is very special in many ways. And that is exactly why we love it.

The vineyard arena of Rust

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.

It's all about the site

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. 

Closeness to nature versus organic viticulture

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 . . .
