Anthonij Rupert Wyne

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, 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.

Cape of Good Hope wines

After a search for vineyards older than 40 years old, Johann Rupert started the Cape of Good Hope project in order to revive these old vineyards by offering the farmers a premium for their fruit. The project strives to vilify these old blocks separately and attempts to express the terroir of the vineyard through the wine.
