IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR WINE MAKING

The rolling hills of the Rust countryside are the last foothills of the Kalk (German for lime stone) Alps. In the ancient Roman quarry in St. Margarethen lime stone is still being extracted.
The hill slopes are opened to the south and close in a semi-circle around Rust ‚Äď similar to an amphitheatre. The topographical specificity of the Rust hilly country is one of the essential factors for the typical local viticulture. The sheltered cauldron shaped hilly countryside forms a natural shield against bad weather and guarantees 300 days of sunshine per year.

Furthermore, the diverse soil structure and the differences in elevation contribute to the unique wine growing conditions, best suited for first class red wines, excellent white wines and most prominently for the local specialty of Ruster Ausbruch.
