Hamilton Russell Vineyards Hamilton Russell Vineyards, one of the most southerly wine Estates in Africa and one of the closest to the sea - is located in the beautiful, cool, maritime Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. The Estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as the best in South Africa and among the best in the New World. Founder, Tim Hamilton Russell purchased the undeveloped hectare property in , after an exhaustive search for the most southerly site on which to make South Africa?
His son Anthony Hamilton Russell, who took over in finally buying the property in , narrowed the range to Pinot noir and Chardonnay only and registered Hamilton Russell Vineyards as an Estate, committing to work only with grapes from their terroir. Extensive soil research initiated in 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.
Anthony with winemaker Hannes Storm and viticulturist Johan Montgomery are completely dedicated to expressing the personality of the Hamilton Russell Vineyards terroir in their wines. Tiny yields and intense worldwide demand keep the elegant, highly individual, Estate grown Pinot noir and Chardonnay in very short supply. Located two miles southeast of Soledad and adjacent to the Pinnacles, this acre vineyard is nestled on a bench overlooking the Salinas River and is an ideal Pinot Noir and Chardonnay location.
The bench location aids in creating excellent air flow and the southwestern exposure maximizes available sunlight and allows the fruit to ripen slowly and evenly. The soils are well-drained and comprised of decomposed granite. Specialized in modern modern Spanish wines and well established in the g the global wine industry since , Hammek Hammeken Cellars is dedicated to introducing the world world to the grape varietals that have deep set set roots in the history of Spain; where eac each varietal can tell a very unique story ab about Spain.
Yes, we are dedicated to the t traditional varietals of Spain, but in no way should we be confused with the traditional Spanish wine profile as we represent a whole NEW SPAIN, a youthful Spain, a Spain worth getting youthful Spain, a Spain worth getting to to know! Hartenberg Estate Occupying its own valley, this family estate is situated on the northeast facing slopes of the Bottelary Hills in the Stellenbosch region.
Here nature has provided the perfect soils and climate to grow and produce award- winning wines. This family owned wine estate offers beautifully crafted wines, scrumptiuos lunches, tours of our underground cellar and pristine walking trials through 60 hectares of conserved wetlands. Hartenberg Estate's 99 hectares of vineyard comprise a total of nine different soil types and many different aspects and microclimates. So as to protect the vines in years with significant heat peaks and the resulting drought conditions, all vineyards that are part of the re-planting program have drip irrigation lines.
Their presence means that vine stress can be minimised as a result of judicious application of water. Haute Cabriere Haute Cabriere is a wine farm steeped in history and local lore. Originally granted to a French Huguenot farmer, Pierre Jourdan, on the 22 December , it has been part of the Franschhoek Wine Valley fabric for over years.
Being a pioneer is intrinsic to Haute Cabriere and throughout its development and evolution it has always remained true to this heritage. In , with a pioneering legacy in mind, the vineyards were replanted in the tradition of the Champagne. Brave unconventional decisions made then ensure that today Achim von Arnim, the famed proprietor, and the Haute Cabriere team, continue to add to the farm's spirit, by specialising in an enticing range of champenoise which have been named after the original Haute Cabriere trailblazer and founder, Pierre Jourdan.
Heartland Heartland Wines was created by a small group of leading South Australian wine identities who are all good friends and share a passion for making great wine. There are three ranges under the Heartland Wines label. His father is respected winemaker Colin Glaetzer, and his two brothers are also winemakers. Ben, a Roseworthy graduate, grew up within the wine industry and started his career working as a cellarhand at Barossa Valley Estate and then as Winemaker at Tyrrell's. He has travelled and worked extensively throughout the world's wine regions and is now based in the Barossa Valley where he makes the Glaetzer family wines with his father, Colin.
Henschke The Henschke family has been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard on his diverse farming property at Keyneton in He was one of many Silesians who had fled their homeland in search of religious freedom, and he arrived from Kutschlau in The wine was initially intended for consumption by family and friends, but with the first commercial release in , believed to be principally riesling and shiraz, the wheels were set in motion for greater things to come.
Each generation has built upon the foundations of Henschke. In more recent times, fourth-generation Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines at a time when blended wines and fortifieds were in vogue. Today, it is fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue at the helm, passionately upholding the family name and reputation.
This highly regarded team has won a multitude of awards that recognise the complementary nature of their roles - Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. One of the most notable things about the couple is their ability to keep devotees fascinated. While they are perhaps most famous for Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone, they continue to surprise with their new styles and techniques. Henschke boasts a strong portfolio, with a focus on ultra- premium single-vineyard wines.
Stephen and Prue are well recognised for their complete integration of vineyard and winery, and have received many accolades. The sixth generation, Johann, Justine and Andreas, are all actively involved in helping Stephen and Prue explore new and exciting developments. Among these are organic and biodynamic principles that will enrich the land of their forebears and strengthen a future in winemaking for the generations to come. Herdade do Esporao Little more than kilometres southeast of Lisbon, near the historical city of Reguengos de Monsaraz, we find a landscape typical of the Baixo Alentejo region.
Hill-top farms and small, whitewashed villages guard the memory of life that goes back to the Prehistoric times of tapirs and dolmens, then Iberians, Romans, Visigoths and Muslims and the many others who once settled here. The Medieval history of the region began with the Reconquista of Monsaraz and Reguengos in Since then, wine and olive oil have become an indelible aspect of the region.
In , wine began being exported to what is now over 50 international markets. The Pilgrim's way to Santiago, between the "Sierra de Tolono" mountain range and the medieval town of LaGuardia in Paganos, right in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa, built in , the grandson of the founder, Victorino Eguren Ugarte, his new winery: the "Heredad Ugarte". The grapes comes from its own ha vineyards in best clayey calcareous terrain of the Rioja Alavesa. Protected from the cold northern winds by the mountain range of Sierra de Tolono, South facing, very ripe grapes grow.
The wines are still largely produced in craftsmanship, but with the help of modern winemaking technology. Hess Collection Donald Hess is a impressive unique. The Hess Collection vineyards represent the diverse growing conditions seen in the Napa Valley. We grow grapes in both cool climates and hot.
Our sites are gently sloped along the Bay to steep in the mountains. History has taught us what is best for our vines, and we learn how to better tend to our vineyards with each passing vintage. This has allowed us to develop site specific viticulture programs for each of our ranches. At the same time we've instituted a number of environmentally- friendly initiatives that keep us at the forefront of sustainable vineyard practices.
After being informed by a professor of viticulture that the best vineyard soils lie on the slopes of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch, Dave Hidden, winemaker by training, entrepreneur by nature, set his mind to owning and running a wine farm. Thirty years later, in , this dream was realised when Dave bought a farm on the very slopes he always dreamt of. From then Hidden Valley has grown by leaps and bounds into a premium and luxury brand and a boutique destination, with award-winning wines, world class olive oil and olives and a state or the art cellar.
The climate and soils of the Columbia Valley produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity. The wines have a liveliness and ripe, zesty fruit flavors that make them ideal complements to a wide range of food. Hole in the water The Winemaker Jeff Sinnott produces fragrant Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand, which represents the striking variety of this type very well. The vineyards are located approximately 40 hectares in Marlborough, Waihopai Valley. Waihopai, in Maori means "hole in the water.
From careful vineyard management to high quality winemaking techniques, the wines are handcrafted to ensure that individual nuances of the vineyard and variety are maintained. Only the best quality fruit is selected, carefully fermented and aged in fine grained Allier oak, culminating in elegant wines of intense richness and complexity. Iona The wines of Iona come from a dramatically unique site in the Cape Winelands. The vineyards are on a mountain plateau metres above sea level, surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
In a country where cool sites are precious, these vineyards are like gold — the grapes ripening up to two months later than other Cape vineyards and in perfect balance. Iona is South Africa's coolest vineyard site. Andrew Gunn and family acquired this beautiful, but run-down apple farm in We Gunns can trace our ancestry to the Vikings that landed in Scotland in the s, hence the Viking longboat emblem on our labels. Since our first release in , the wines of Iona have quickly made a name as being among the finest in the world.
We invite you to visit our mountain vineyards or browse the site for further information, contact details and orders. If you would like to know where to find our wines please check our Agents or call us for restaurant listings in South Africa. Jas D'Esclans As of antiquity, the valley of Esclans was very famous for its grapes which furnished the rich Roman tables. First sheep fields of summer pastures from which its name of JAS; then significant sericulture whose alleys of mulberry trees being used to feeds the silkworms still remain the witnesses; and the viticulture which remains the only activity continuing nowadays.
The external appearance of the winery has undergone few changes, and it maintains the same classical presence it had almost 40 years ago. However, from the time it was built, the inside of the Jean Leon winery has always been home to the latest technological advances for the production of wines of the highest expression. This is why, despite the technical advances incorporated by the winery, many tasks are still performed in a manual and traditional way, thus guaranteeing the perfect monitoring of all processes. Oenologist Jaume Rovira continues to oversee all wine production, contributing the knowledge accumulated over many years working on the estate and in the winery.
The Jean Leon winery boasts a fine team of staff with extensive experience. Especially worthy of mention is our pago team, which performs all tasks manually, allowing us to carefully select the grapes both in the vineyard and on the selection table at harvest time. Jordan Winery Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since on a farm with a history going back over years.
He's a geologist, she's an economist - together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the hectare Stellenbosch property in , and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. Gary and Kathy worked internationally for two years, refining their high- energy instincts with practical experience. They returned home to build a cellar in The following year, the vines were judged ready for making wines that would carry the Jordan name.
From that first year it was obvious that a new star had been added to the winemaking firmament. Continuing success has enlarged the team, with the focus on producing fiercely individual wines that combine the fruity accessibility of the New World with the Classic Elegance.
This traditional house that has owned vineyards from is one of the oldest winegrowing families in the village and uses time honoured methods for making good wine.
