Hamilton Russell Vineyards in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

The late Tim Hamilton Russell pioneered viticulture and winemaking in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, producing the region’s first wines four decades ago. Son Anthony took over the helm of Hamilton Russell Vineyards in 1991, continuing his father’s vision of creating world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a part of the Cape that had never grabbed anyone’s imagination as being wine country.
