Ashbourne Wines and Hamilton Russell Vineyards
Close to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve outside Hermanus, Hamilton Russell Vineyards – established in 1975 – was the pioneering wine producer in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Under the same custodianship, neighbouring farm Ashbourne Wines, adds to the valley’s commitments to conservation of natural habitats while producing excellent quality wines.
The health of the environment is of critical importance to this family who live and work where the wine is made. They 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.
Area conserved: 63 ha
