Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm, L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001, the farm was eventually taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003 and the brand named after him.
It was Johann Rupert who constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, catapulting the farm into a prestigious wine estate and the beginnings of what is now a sprawling enterprise.
The focus is on terroir specific wines and therefore it would seem obvious that the brand is made up of an impressive portfolio of farms representing the best in grape producing locations.
The portfolio is made up of L’Ormarins situated in Franschhoek, Rooderust in Darling, Riebeeksrivier in the Swartland and Altima in isolated Elandskloof. Individually each site offers optimum varietal specific growing conditions, allowing Anthonij Rupert Wyne to adhere to the requirements of their different brands.
The Anthonij Rupert Wyne vision is made up of a number of facets, best illustrated by their 5 wine brands which each contribute to the overall goal.
The flagship range, represent the pinnacle of quality, achieved by using only the best grapes from the best suited terroirs and processed by the most sophisticated machinery in winemaking today.
Cape of Good Hope:
The range pays tribute to the vinous heritage of the Western Cape, using grapes from ancient vines and unique sites to celebrate their impressive inheritance of terroir, climate, soil and grape variety.
The range focuses on innovation with their first Méthode Cap Classique, challenging the emerging market successfully.
The Terra del Capo:
The range is a homage to the late Anthonij Rupert and his passion to bring the finest of Italian varietals to South African soils, with two distinctly Italian wines.
The range is made up of the more accessible wines bearing the name of South Africa’s national flower as well as the shape-shifting Greek God, Proteus illustrating the diversity of the range and commitment to the area.
These brands unite to form a mighty vision of quality, innovation and South African heritage, something that is replicated in all aspects of Anthonij Rupert Wyne.
The L’Ormarins Estate houses the Terra del Capo cellars, equipped with state-of-the-art machinery, gravity-fed cellars and a mechanical flywheel, the only one of its kind on the continent and responsible for the production of these award-winning wines. The precision and sense of detail is carried on to two exquisite tasting rooms located on the estate, each one dedicated to one of the popular wine ranges.
Anthonij Rupert Wyne has become an experience and we encourage guests to come and visit us on the estate.
