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.
