Historical background to the Ruster Ausbruch

If the interaction between nature and humankind is successful, a special taste experience may develop in the barrels and we are pleased with a new vintage of “Ruster Ausbruch”.

Harvesting the Ruster Ausbruch

The composition of varieties and quantity in one Ausbruch harvest may vary widely.
The year 2015 brought us fully ripened and healthy grapes and we were happy about the equal Botrytis at the vineyards of Welschriesling, Riesling and Pinot Gris. This was one of the largest Botrytis harvests in that decade. A very good vintage was the result.

The Blaufränkisch

The autochthonous Austrian variety Blaufränkisch is cultivated in Burgenland and around Lake Neusiedl.

Our family has been cultivating Blaufränkisch for hundreds of years. Therefore, it is located at the best vineyards. Only in years that are very good for red wine we produce the Blaufränkisch Ried Kreften, which is also known as the top seller at our winery.
