About 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 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 Tasting Room
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.
