The historic center of Rust, just one hour south of Vienna, Austria, in Burgenland, is lined with stately Baroque and Renaissance façades with beautiful portals and heraldic stucco decorations. The source of the city’s wealth is a golden, sweet wine that is so exquisite that it has been sought the world over by kings.

Contrary to other historical towns, houses still maintain their original function as homes and family wineries. The source of the city’s wealth is a golden, sweet wine that is so exquisite that it has been sought the world over by kings. “Ruster Ausbruch” is the unique and prestigious wine with which the city of Rust purchased its right to self-govern from Emperor Leopold I in 1681.

Long warm autumns lavish the vineyards of Rust with morning fog and afternoon sun allowing grapes to shrivel with spicy noble rot on the vine. Suitable grapes are hand selected or “broken out” (Ausbruch) of bunches to produce a wine with aromas and flavors of honey, spice and exotic fruit nectar.

Schröck, Feiler-Artinger, Schandl, Wenzel and Triebaumer are just a few producers in Rust where you can taste and purchase wines on historic premises.
