The Rust Wine Treasures

Friday 20 to Sunday 22 April, 2012

Winemakers in Rust open their cellar doors; every year in April, 30 vintners from Rust invite visitors to taste their younger and older vintages. Hundreds of wine lovers come to Rust to visit their “favourite vintner,” discover new wineries and dedicate the weekend to the subject of wine.

However, this weekend in April is not only a matter of tasting alone. A comprehensive social programme turns it into a brief vacation: wine tasting on Friday evening, a concert on Saturday, wine seminars, exhibitions etc. complement the event.

The wine-makers of Rust thus invite you: Find your wine treasure!

“Bacchus would be pleased” – Rust Golden Wine Week

Schedule July 25- 29, 2012

The Rust wine-makers are talented when it comes to combining top-wine culture with Bacchanalian joie de vivre. The Rust town hall square with its unique flair represents the optimal ambiance for the Rust Golden Wine Week which this next takes place from July 25 - 29, 2012.

Wine-lovers will find everything their heart desires: from the delicately fruity Welschriesling via Rust Salon Wines to the Ruster Ausbruch and cult wines like the Blaufränkisch Mariental or the Solitair.

Wine is part of our culture and the Rust Golden Wine Week offers an unsophisticated encounter with the noble drop. Taste, joke, see and be seen, laugh…live.

Rust Timeless Autumn

Saturday, November 3 and Sunday, November 4, 2012

Have you ever been to a wine baptism? Each year on a Saturday in November the young wine becomes formally baptized, which means blessed by the clergyman of town.

After the forerunners of the new vintage have been deemed full members of the “wine-society,” they are made available for tasting. Furthermore visitors have the opportunity to get to know the top-wines of the last vintages of the Rust wine-makers.
