Winemaker
The arts, and nature: two passions that Somerset West-born André Roux holds close to his heart. Interests that lend themselves perfectly to a career in winemaking. It is no great wonder then that he chose to complete a degree in Viticulture and Oenology at Stellenbosch University, and then slowly make his way – through several positions that granted him experience in both vines and wines – to Rupert & Rothschild, to begin a new chapter with us in the spring of 2013. Today, he views his role as something of a guide – challenged with gently steering the wonders of nature in the right direction, shaping the grapes to express their full potential. It is a process that requires intense focus, patience and precision. For André, winemaking is a labour of love. A profession born from passion – motivated by the joy of knowing that the final product brings happiness to people near and far. “I am a winemaker because it is what I enjoy doing. If I didn’t have to work, I would still make wine.” – André Roux
Winemaker
Wine has always been a fundamental facet of Kayla Oertle-Morse’s life. It is, for her, synonymous with joyful celebrations, family dinners and precious memories. So her move into this world was a natural progression, her decision to study Viticulture and Oenology at Stellenbosch University, an obvious choice. Since joining the Rupert & Rothschild family in 2017, she has devoted her time, attention and energy to crafting excellence in the cellar. An art, she says, that relies on meticulous attention to detail through every step – an approach that yields consistent quality. Ultimately, her passion for winemaking centres on the element of constant evolution – on the vine, in the barrel, in the bottle. She appreciates the delicate balance between nature and chemistry that goes into the creation journey. And treasures the way this craft continues to live on in experiences. “I love that our wine can be enjoyed for years to come across various occasions – often forming the cornerstone of memories and moments that bring people together.” – Kayla Oertle-Morse
History of the Estate
The Rupert & Rothschild wine-growing region sits amongst the northernmost vineyards of the southern hemisphere, and the vines they cultivate here extend over more than 100 hectares. The partnership’s estate in Fredericksburg, an historic French Huguenot farm established in 1690, lies at the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franschhoek Valley between Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek. The deal struck between Dr Anton Rupert and Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1997 has continued to be passed down the generations, with both men relinquishing the reigns to their respective sons: Anthonij Rupert and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild. Following the passing of Anthonij Rupert in 2001, his older brother Johann Rupert and sister Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg assumed his position.
About the Wines
Rupert & Rothschild produce three distinct wines; a single varietal Chardonnay; Rupert & Rothschild Baroness Nadine, named after the wife of Baron Edmond; a flagship Bordeaux blend; Rupert & Rothschild Baron Edmond and a classic red blend; Rupert & Rothschild Classique, one of South Africa’s most sought after red blends. Today, Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons is an internationally recognised premier wine brand. A luxuriously elegant and classical brand that underpins a winemaking philosophy of excellence and craftsmanship.
