One of the most southerly wine estates in Africa and close to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve, Hamilton Russell Vineyards – established in 1975 – was the pioneering wine producer in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. The Estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
This family-owned farm has a private nature reserve with pristine mountain fynbos and two small wetlands as part of the 407ha under conservation across the adjacent properties owned by the family.
Hamilton Russell have also extended the natural biodiversity into the vineyards by establishing biodiversity islands and species-diverse permanent cover crops. The land is also home to numerous species of animals, including klipspringer, caracal and bat-eared fox.
By-appointment tours and tastings bring the family-farm experience to life.
