Rupert & Rothschild Links the Old and the New World
The Rupert & Rothschild winery is located at the foot of the Simonsberg Mountains on the former French Huguenot farm Fredericksburg, which was founded in 1690. The terroir is reminiscent of some cultivation areas in France and thus offers optimal conditions for the South African-French cooperation. Rupert & Rothschild was founded in 1997 by the South African Dr. Anton Rupert and the French Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Today, the sons of the founders continue the legacy of their fathers. Since then, South African premium wines with French influences have been produced here.
Rupert & Rothschild Stands for Quality Instead of Quantity
The estate's vineyards produce only three grape varieties for three wines. The grapes grow in the best conditions and a cool wind ensures optimal temperatures. The quality standard is very high, only the best grapes are processed.
In the wine cellar, particularly high-quality, complex and elegant wines are produced, which make the taste buds explode. Rupert & Rothschild produces only three wines, all of which are considered world class wines. The Classique is a blend of the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with aromas of raspberries and ripe figs. Baron Edmond, also a blend made from the grape varieties Merlot and a larger portion of Cabernet Sauvignon, convinces with its fruit intensity. Baroness Nadine is a Chardonnay aged in oak barrels, which captivates the connoisseur.
Rupert & Rothschild Attaches Great Importance to Environmental Protection
The Rupert & Rothschild winery is committed to sustainable winegrowing for the environment. It was the first South African winery to receive the 14001 Environmental Management Certification for good working conditions and an environmentally conscious and efficient way of working.
