From humble beginnings, inspired by a dream
The L’Ormarins range was initially established as a Cap Classique range, named after French Huguenot, Jean Roi’s hometown Lourmarins in Provence.
Today the range is made up of a diverse range of extraordinary passion projects in the Anthonij Rupert portfolio, including our Sagnac, Eau de Vie, Port and Ou Bosstok Chenin made from 56 year old bush vine that was taken from the Paardeberg Mountains and replanted on the north facing decomposed granite slopes of L’Ormarins.

L'Ormarins Queen's Plate becomes L'Ormarins King's Plate
7th January 2023
South Africa's premier WFA mile was first run in honour of Queen Victoria after she gifted a silver plate and 500 sovereigns to the South African Turf Club. The inaugural contest, staged as The Queen's Plate, was held as a heats event and won by Cape Town owner Mr Chiappini’s horse, Dispatch in April 1861. The event has maintained its royal ties meticulously ever since.
The race was run as the King’s Plate from the reign of Edward VII through to George VI. Reverting to the Queen’s Plate when Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne in 1952, it continued to run under that name until 2022.
It is an honour to be associated with an event that carried her name for a remarkable 70 years. In keeping with the qualities of grace, elegance and above all, tradition that she so embodied, L'Ormarins is proud to continue that legacy under the reign of King Charles III under the new banner of the King's Plate.
The 2023 L’Ormarins King’s Plate will be held on Saturday, 7th January 2023 at Kenilworth Racecourse, Cape Town.
