L’Ormarins the main estate in the Anthonij Rupert Wyne portfolio is situated in the Franschhoek area in South Africa. The farm has a combination of both low-lying land and moderate-to-steep slopes. There is an altitude difference of 385m between the lowest (165m) and the highest (580m) points on the farm.
The vineyards are mainly planted on the slopes of the Groot Drakenstein mountains where granite soils produce robust, expressive wines.
In 2011 the property situated to the east of L’Ormarins -which belonged to Graham Beck was purchased and now forms part of the L’Ormarins vineyards. Most of the existing vines were uprooted and only the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blocks were left, as these grapes will be used for the L’Ormarins Méthode Cap Classique wines.
