The Feiler-Artinger Story

Our next visit to Feiler-Artinger will feature a visit to see the cows. The estate had always owned cows until about 10 years ago but now Kurt, an ecologically-minded young man, has decided to bring them back, in part, no doubt, to help fertilise his biodynamic vineyard. The town of Rust is situated on the Western side of Lake Neusiedl, an ideal microclimate for the production of noble sweet botrytised wines. The Ruster Ausbruch wines are deservedly world-famous, from a village renowned since the C17th for its sweet wine; brilliant intensity, voluptuous sweetness, complexity and balance.

Feiler-Artinger Wines

Kurt’s winemaking for the estate has produced some world class examples and Feiler-Artinger have a huge international reputation. Less well-known, but also admirable, are his reds. With Greiner (schist) and Umriss (limestone) we have the chance for a fascinating comparison between pure Blaufränkisch from different soils. The estate’s premium red, Solitaire, is a blend of Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and is a powerful but elegant wine.
