Winemaking Tradition in Rust Since 1741
Paul Schandl owns the Peter Schandl Winery, the property of the Schandl family for around 276 years. His wife, Elle, and parents, Ursula and Peter, support him in the vineyards and wine cellar. In 1980, Peter brought Cabernet to Rust. During that period, Paul attended different wineries in South Africa, New Zealand, California, and many others to master his art of winemaking. Apart from historical varieties, today, Paul has dedicated his vineyards to other vines, including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Traminer, Blaufränkisch, Merlot, and Pinot Noir.
