Terra Del Capo

Il Cuore d’Italia | The soil of the Cape, the heart of Italy.

About

The Story Behind the Brand

Terra del Capo is a brand born of the late Anthonij Rupert’s passion for Italian wines. The brand was introduced for the first time in 1998 and consisted of Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and a Nebbiolo/Sangiovese blend, though it has since been refined to include a single-varietal Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, co-fermented Merlot/Sangiovese blend Arne and an extra virgin olive oil produced at the L’Ormarins estate.

Italian wines are innately well-suited to food, the natural acidity of varietals such as Sangiovese making it almost chameleon-like in its ability to offer itself up as accompaniment to either protein, fat or salt - whichever you prefer. As such we have taken it upon ourselves to curate a library of recipes well-suited to our Italian wines.
