Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons

A joint venture between the Rupert family from South Africa and the Rothschild family in France, we are Bordeaux specialists at heart, with a core focus on three quality wines. The Rupert & Rothschild partnership was formed in 1997 by the late Dr Anton Rupert of South Africa and the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France. Their vision was carried forward by their sons, the late Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Today, the Rupert family and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild share this prestigious wine partnership. Fredericksburg, the historic French Huguenot farm established in 1690 at the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franschhoek Valley, is home to Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons. It was in this valley over 300 years ago that the early French Huguenots first discovered a terroir similar to that of winegrowing regions in France and chose to settle and cultivate vineyards here. Yvonne Lester leads the winemaking team, ensuring beautifully balanced, refined, and elegant Bordeaux blends and Chardonnay.
