Whoever comes to Rust is immediately aware that this town – and its wine as well - is something special. The gently rising hills of the Rust Hügelland on the western banks of Lake Neusiedl surround the town like an amphitheatre; a view which fascinates every time anew. The location is unique and gives wines from Rust a distinctive and unique character.
Rust vintners cultivate a great variety of grapes for their red and white wines. Above all, the climate of the Pannonian Region decisively influences the growth of the grapes: hot dry summers and cold, humid winters provide for an extraordinary harvest every year.
This private day trip from Vienna to Austrias vine countryside is unique. The most spectacular scenery makes this excursion to an unforgettable day tour. First stop is Eisenstadt
Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt is one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Austria and presents a fascinating view of the resplendent life once lived at the court of the Princes Esterházy. But the palace is still the hub of the cultural scene today and regularly provides the picturesque backdrop for festivities and social events.
On this tour, you climb the 134 stairs of Esterhazy Palace's only self-contained, continuous staircase to the belfry, housing Austria's most important historical bell dating from 1692. At the top, you can admire the view of over Eisenstadt from the tower's balustrade while enjoying a class of sparkling vine. next stop is the palace wine cellar for a guided vine tasting. A tour of the palace with a chance to see the world famous Haydnsaal draws this package to a conclusion.
Right afterwards we will drive into a very scenic vine region. Vineyards everywhere, great views and cozy places wherever you are! Lets go for lunch in a typical local place and there are a lot more surprises to come!
All that in a top class Minivan, with all the luxury service you expect! Your personal tour guide is always around and our maximum flexibility makes this unique tour to an unforgettable trip.
The diversity of the region is also mirrored in the various soil structures of Rust and their origins: alluvial deposits from the Alpine region, in some places ancient rocks, wind-carried fine sand (Loess) or sediments of primeval seas form a diverse and multifaceted mosaic of very differentiated soils – an excellent basis and at the same time a challenge for wine growers in Rust.
