Anthonij Rupert Wine-Tasting: A Choice of Three Pairings

The two tasting rooms at Anthonij Rupert offer a variety of three tasting experiences with spectacular vineyard and mountain views.

This scenic wine farm, located next to an estate that dates back to 1694, boasts an impressive selection of award-winning vintages. And, if that’s your thing, go and experience them in the comfort of this elegant tasting room, which offers flavour-rich tasting experiences with breathtaking views of the valley and Groot Drakenstein Mountains behind.

Anthonij Rupert wine-tasting experiences

The impressive Anthonij Rupert cellar, equipped with state-of-the-art machinery, gravity-fed cellars and a mechanical flywheel (the only one of its kind on the continent) is where the six wines in the Anthonij Rupert flagship range are produced. There are also three other cellars that collectively produce wines under the L’Ormarins, Cape of Good Hope, Terra del Capo, Protea and Jean Roi brands.

The exquisite detail is carried through to two stylish tasting rooms. The Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room is located in the farm’s historic and beautifully appointed Manor House, and offers bespoke wine tastings.

The Terra del Capo tasting room is less formal and has a delicious tapas menu that can be enjoyed at the Antipasto Bar, or on the verandah outside. Tasting includes wines from the Terra del Capo and Protea range.

The following wine-tasting experiences are available, along with the estate’s knowledgeable guides:
