The South African wine-growing region is among the northernmost vintages of the southern hemisphere. The vines cultivated by Rupert & Rothschild winemakers extend over more than 100 hectares.
The estate is located at the foot of Simonsberg Mountain between Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek. It is near the country's west coast in the heart of Capetown Province and its historic wine region. This fabulous terroir benefits from the cool temperatures carried by Antarctica's Benguela current and from strong sun exposure that helps the grapes ripen in a quasi-Mediterranean climate.
