About this Item

Baron Edmond, 2008

Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons was established in 1997 under the leadership of Dr. Anton Rupert and Baron Edmond de Rothschild. The men later handed over the reins to their respective sons: Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Few SA wine brands have been able to penetrate the premium global market quite like R&R with their distinctive Bordeaux-style blends from the Cape.
