Hamilton Russell Vineyards Make A Difference
The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pre-School is a project run for the farm community in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and is situated on the picturesque Hamilton Russell Vineyards. They aim to provide top quality educational care for under privileged children, in such a way to maximise the chances of early success in their education and therefore the successful completion of their schooling.
The school is a registered ECD and NPO and runs mainly on donations and fundraising. It is their vision to not only provide a safe and happy environment in which to get the children school ready, but also to inspire them to learn additional skill sets to be able to become valuable contributors to society in later life.
Most of the pre-school’s income is generated by Hamilton Russell Vineyards
and the generosity of Anthony and Olive Hamilton Russell. They donated
the building, which houses the school and they provide the water, electricity,
maintenance and garden services to the school free of charge.

The Chardonnay is bright, vibrant natural acidity and a marked dry minerality combine with structural length and complexity in this elegant, classically styled wine.
The Pinot Noir is not overly fruity, soft and “sweet” and it generally shows hints of that alluring “primal” character along with a dark, spicy, complex primary fruit perfume.
