At the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franchschoek Valley lies the historic Frecnch Hugenot farm, Fredericksburg, established in 1690, and now home to Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons.

It was in this valley over 300 years ago that the early French Hugenots first discovered a terroir similar to that of certain wine growing regions in France. Hence their decision to settle and cultivate vineyards there.

The Rupert & Rothschild partnership was formed in 1997 by the late Baron Edmond de Rothschild of France. Their vision and guiding principles were carried forward by their sons, the late Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Today the Rupert family and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild share this prestigious partnership in wine produiction.

In addition to the Rupert and Rothschild families striving to produce world-class wine, they are deeply committed to the environment. This resulted in Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons being the first winery in South Africa to be awarded ISO14001 Environmental Management Certification.

Benefits of the system include the creation of an improved and safer working environment, reduced costs and improved efficiency as well as customer and public confidence that the company is committed to meeting its environmental responsibilities.

To produce the finest quality wine, meticulous attention is given to vineyard and cellar practices.
