Terra Del Capo Pinot Grigio
Anthonij Rupert had an abiding affection for Italy, particularly its wines and food. Rupert was convinced that South African soils could also express Italian grape varieties in a unique, sympathetic fashion. The Pinot Grigio grapes come from four different wards in the Western Cape, namely Franschhoek, Groenekloof, Elgin and Elandskloof - each contributing its own individual characteristics to the wine.

Terra Del Capo Sangiovese
Terra del Capo is a brand born of the late Anthonij Rupert’s passion for Italian wines. Sangiovese, one of Italy's unique grape varietals, thrives in South Africa, on the Rooderust farm near Darling, where long dry summers are typical, tempered by cool Atlantic sea breezes. This food friendly red wine, has been matured in 500L French and American oak barrels for 12 months.

Terra del Capo, meaning “terroir of the Cape”, is the Italian varietal range produced by L'Ormarins Private Cellar in homage to the late Anthonij Rupert and his passion to bring the finest Italian varietals to South African soils. Equal portions of Merlot and Sangiovese make up this red blend, with grapes being co-fermented, helping to marry the fruit flavours from both varieties. 10 months aging in 225L French oak barrels.
