The historic L'Ormarins wine estate, established in 1694, are nestled beneath the jagged peaks of the Groot Drakenstein mountain, where the granite soils produce strong, expressive wines. It was out of this estate that Johann Rupert created Anthonij Rupert Wines, a tribute to his late brother. The wines of Anthonij Rupert are a true representation of this larger than life individual: big, with bold flavors that will leave a lasting impression!
