Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons

    Detailed Information



    The late Dr Anton Rupert, an internationally respected industrialist who established a global business empire was held in high regard as a committed conservationist and together with his art-devoted wife Huberte, played an immense role in the preservation of art.

    The Rupert family, with a passion for producing world-class wine, own three other wine estates in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley: La Motte Wine Estate, L’Ormarins Wine Estate and Anthonij Rupert Wyne.

    The Rothschild family’s passion for wine started when James de Rothschild purchased Château Lafite in 1868. His great-grandson, Baron Edmond de Rothschild embraced his vision and expanded their wine portfolio by acquiring two estates in Listrac and Moulis-en-Médoc in 1973. This was to become Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, today overseen by his son and his wife, Baron Benjamin and Baroness Ariane de Rothschild.

    Edmond de Rothschild Heritage includes vineyards in France, Spain, Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa.



    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 passing 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
