Anthonij Rupert Wines in Franschhoek
Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm, L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, the farm was taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003 and the company renamed after him.
Johann Rupert constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, catapulting the farm into a prestigious wine estate and sprawling enterprise.
Wines are produced under 5 brands: Protea wines, Terra del Capo Italian varietal wines, Cape of Good Hope site specific wines and the Anthonij Rupert flagship range.
“It would be remiss not to visit Anthonij Rupert Wines, the most beautiful winery in the area, with two tasting rooms and great views of the Franschhoek Valley and the Groot Drakenstein Mountains.”
The Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room is located in the farm’s historic and recently refurbished Manor House. Here, bespoke wine tastings of our Cape of Good Hope and Anthonij Rupert wine ranges can be enjoyed at leisure. Furnished throughout in the mid-nineteenth century Cape Dutch style, the house features beautiful wood beam ceilings, yellowwood floors and spacious entertainment areas.
Adorning the walls is a beautiful collection of period art, which depict the Cape’s landscape while the rooms are tastefully furnished with carefully sourced antique pieces.
The front rooms lead out onto a veranda with breathtaking views of the Franschhoek Wine Valley, whilst the back porch displays vistas onto the rose garden and the Groot Drakenstein Mountains. Alongside the Manor House is a carefully selected herb garden, which showcases a broad range of culinary and medicinal herbs.
Wine tastings are presented in flights where wines with similar properties are grouped together.
Your experience may be complimented by spending the afternoon, soaking up the picturesque views of the Franschhoek Valley, while
indulging in High Tea.
Their belief is that superb quality wine can be attributed to the land with soil and climate working hand in hand to highlight each grape variety. The aim in the cellar is to preserve all the grape has to offer and therefore grapes are tended to in small pockets, temperatures are controlled and timing is perfect.
When visiting, stop at the Motor Museum near the entrance where you can see over 300 cars in the collection, of which 80 are on display at any given time. At reception jump on a shuttle to our Chardonnay Tasting, enjoy farm views and sit down to enjoy the informative tasting.
