Variety: The autochthonous grape variety Furmint has always been cultivated in Rust. In Austria, there are only about 10 hectares of Furmint grapevines. The long tradition of cultivating Furmint starts with the Ruster Ausbruch. The Furmint gives this wine its necessary acidity and reveals sweet wines that are in the position to compete against the best in the world. Harvested by hand, also very strong, dry Furmint wines with high storage suitability are cultivated.

Tasting: bright yellow, focused fruit and structure, aromas of apple and quince, full-bodied balance, fine nearly salty minerality, firm and compact with strong expression.

Best served with: catfish fillet with leaf spinach, pumpkin pie, celery-cheese-quiche, Wiener schnitzel, roast pork with quince chutney, quince compote.

      Starlings over the vineyard

      In September, during the early harvest period, thousands of starlings are circling Rust und Lake Neusiedl in big swarms.

      Waiting for the swarm

      The winegrowers are not really happy about the birds, because their harvest is at stake.

      Furmint protected by a net

      Without protective nets, the grapes located near the lake would be eaten very quickly.

      Grape behind bars

      The traditional Furmint and Traminer vineyards have to be protected starting in August.

      Hands up or I´ll shoot

      Sometimes the nets are not enough. Therefore, the starlings are chased away by bangers.
