    THE STORY

    HERITAGE

    AR Anton Rupert

    THE BEGINNING

    L’Ormarins Acquired

    When Dr. Anton Rupert acquired L’Ormarins in 1968 from Pieter Gabriel Marais and Willem Pieter Morkel, L’Ormarins had already made the first Champion South African Brandy and White Wine.

    FORMATIVE YEARS

    Anthonij’s L’Ormarins

    In 1984 Anthonij, having taken over the running of L’Ormarins from his father restored the Manor House (Built in 1811) and the Historic Cellar (dating back to 1799), which were both declared national monuments. In 1989 L’Ormarins won every major local wine competition. While tragically in 2001, Anthonij Rupert passes away.

    Establishing the Anthonij Rupert brand

    In 2003 Johann Rupert takes over L’Ormarins. In 2005 he builds the Anthonij Rupert Cellar. A state of the art, gravity fed cellar with revolving ceiling and underground barrel cellar completed in memory of his brother. That same year he employs internationally acclaimed oenologist, Michel Rolland, as a consultant to the Anthonij Rupert team, resulting in the first vintage of Anthonij Rupert wines released in 2009. Since the maiden 2005 vintage completed in this cellar, all wines in the range including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and ‘The Blend’ have consistently scored 90 points and more for every vintage judged by Wine Spectator.
