Hamilton Russell Vineyards - the most southerly wine estate in Africa - is located in the cool, maritime Walker Bay wine region near the old fishing village of Hermanus. Founder Tim Hamilton Russell purchased the undeveloped 170 hectare farm in 1975; his son Anthony took over in 1991. The estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which are widely regarded as among the best in the New World. Extensive soil research in 1994 identified 52 hectares of stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil as optimal for the individual, origin expressive style they aim for and all plantings have now been limited to this soil type.
