Hamilton Russell Vineyards is situated close to Hermanus in the maritime climate of the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) appellation. Hamilton Russell is one of the southernmost wine estates of Africa and is located in close proximity to the ocean. Hamilton Russell specialises in highly individualised and terroir driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay regarded by most as the best in South Africa and the best of the new world wines.

Tim Hamilton Russell purchased the 170 hectare estate in 1975 after having searched for a site as far south as possible to grow noble grape varieties most suited to cool climate conditions. Anthony Hamilton Russell took over the estate in 1994 and radically reduced the portfolio of wines to two wines only, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. He went on to register the wine farm as an estate and undertook to the planting of additional vines.

Following intensive research and study, 52 hectares of land characterized by stone and slate were identified as suitable for the production of the expressive Hamilton Russell wines. With the assistance of winemaker Hannes Storm and viticulturist Johan Montgomery, Anthony has made it his mission for the wines of Hamilton Russell to reflect the unique terroir of the area. Small volumes of production coupled with high global demand place the elegant and individualistic wines of Hamilton Russell in a constantly sought after category.
