Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons | Franschhoek Valley
Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons is the prestigious partnership formed between the Rupert Family of South Africa and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. They joined forces in 1997 with the single goal of producing a South African wine of world-class renown.
The Rupert & Rothschild wine-growing region sits amongst the northernmost vineyards of the southern hemisphere, and the vines they cultivate here extend over more than 100 hectares. The partnership’s estate in Fredericksburg, an historic French Huguenot farm established in 1690, lies at the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franschhoek Valley between Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek.
The deal struck between Dr Anton Rupert and Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1997 has continued to be passed down the generations, with both men relinquishing the reigns to their respective sons: Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Following the passing of Anthonij Rupert in 2001, his older brother Johann Rupert and sister Hanneli Rupert- Koegelenberg assumed his position.
Today, Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons is an internationally recognised, luxuriously elegant and classical brand that underpins a winemaking philosophy of excellence and craftsmanship.
