Anthonij Rupert Wyne
Situated against the majestic backdrop of the Groot Drakenstein Mountains, Anthonij Rupert Wyne forms part of the famed Franschhoek wine valley in South Africa.
Although the Estate is famous for its prized vineyards, little is known about the over 300 ha which is managed as pristine nature reserve. This site is made up of a collection of microclimates which accommodate various diverse local plant communities such as sandstone cliffs, riparian forests, as well as mountain and lowland fynbos.
The Estate’s water systems, which include a beautiful seasonal waterfall, pristine streams and flood plains are managed with meticulous care and ultimate stewardship. It is here that a very unique thriving habitat has been resurrected for not only red listed species such as the Cape violet (Charadrophila capensis), but also for amazing indigenous mammals such as Cape leopard, Cape fox, lynx, honey badger and porcupine who roam the Cape’s mountain ranges.
Estate operational processes include best practices such as staff awareness training, recycling managed with vigilance and care, as well as biological farming practices. There are plans to further enhance the current generation of 20% green energy to full capacity. The energy system consists of hydro and solar systems.
