Rosi Schuster Sankt Margarethen is a red wine made by Hannes Schuster with the Blaufrankisch variety in Austrian Burgenland. It is made with grapes from vineyards over 50 years old on the hillside, with sandy and limestone soils in the Sankt Margarethen area. Manual harvest, spontaneous fermentation and 20 months of aging in 500-liter barrels. A wine that shows the meatier side of the Blaufrankisch, and one of the top wines from the winery.

Rosi Schuster founded the winery together with her husband Franz in the 70s of the last century. She bears her name because she was in charge of viticulture and production, while her husband was in charge of the administrative part. With the turn of the century the generational change takes place and it is her son Hannes Schuster who has held the reins alone since 2007. Hannes is someone who makes tremendous wines but cannot be more modest at the same time. He intervenes the least and does not want to make up a terroir and perfectly acclimatized varieties.
The Burgenland is a fascinating wine region that stretches from the border with Lower Austria and Carnuntum, on both sides of Lake Neusiedl; along its eastern coast to the Hungarian border. It is, therefore, the border between the two countries, within Austria. There is hardly any Riesling here, not much Grüner Veltliner either. On the contrary, it is the land of Furmint in white, but above all and above all, it is the land of reds made with the Blaufrankisch and Sankt Laurent varieties.
