In 1997, under the leadership of Dr Anton Rupert and Baron Edmond de Rothschild, Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons was established. Both men later relinquished the reigns to their respective sons; Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Following the tragic death of Anthonij Rupert in 2001, his older brother Johann Rupert and sister Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg assumed his position.
The brand produces three distinctive wines; a single varietal Chardonnay, Rupert & Rothschild Baroness Nadine named after Baroness Nadine de Rothschild, wife of Edmond de Rothschild. A flagship Bordeaux blend; Rupert & Rothschild Baron Edmond de Rothschild named after the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild and a classic red blend; Rupert & Rothschild Classique, one of the most widely sold and sought after South African red wines in its category.
