Anthonij Rupert Wine-Tasting: A Choice of Three Decadent Pairings

Anthonij Rupert Estate Wine-Tasting

The tasting rooms at Anthonij Rupert offer three flavour-rich pairing experiences.

Part of an estate dating back to 1694, Anthonij Rupert is home to two elegant tasting rooms and an impressive selection of award-winning vintages that pair beautifully with an array of edibles against the backdrop of a verdant valley and the Groot Drakenstein Mountains.

Anthonij Rupert wine-tasting experiences

The impressive gravity-fed cellar, equipped with state-of-the-art machinery 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 an additional three cellars that collectively produce L’Ormarins, Cape of Good Hope, Terra del Capo, Protea and Jean Roi wines.

This exacting detail is carried through to two stylish tasting rooms: The Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room located in the farm’s beautifully appointed Manor House, which offers bespoke wine tastings, and the Terra del Capo Tasting Room that offers a tapas menu to be enjoyed at the Antipasto Bar, or on the verandah outside. Tastings in the latter include wines from the Terra del Capo and Protea range.

The following wine-tasting experiences are available:
