The winery is located in the free town of Rust in Burgenland (Austria). Hermann Hammer travelled the world as a photographer, and in 1994 he took over his parents-in-law's winery full-time as a career changer. The winery has been run by his son Markus Hammer since 2015. The vineyards cover six hectares in the vineyards Alter Umriss, Geyer, Ludmaisch, Neuer Umriss, Bandkräftn, Plachen, Satz, Vogelsang and Waldumriss. They are 75% planted with the white wine varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Welschriesling, Sauvignon Bl anc and Gelber Muskateller, and 25% with the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch and Merlot. Since the 2015 vintage, the vineyards have been cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture. Careful foliage management and yield reduction lay the foundation for high quality. The premium wines include selections aged in barriques, several Ruster Ausbruch essence from different varieties and Merlot. In years with suitable weather conditions, ice wines and Trockenbeerenauslesen are also produced. A bottle-fermented sparkling wine is also produced.
