Hamilton Russell Vineyards – one of the most southerly wine Estates in Africa and one of the closest to the sea – pioneered viticulture and winemaking in the beautiful, cool, maritime Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. The Estate specializes in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as the best in South Africa and among the finest in the New World.
The Wharton Club of Charlotte is delighted to invite you to the Hamilton Russell Wine Dinner at Carmel Country Club at which owners/winemakers Anthony Hamilton Russell, WG'90 and his wife, Olive, a gourmet chef, will share their various fine vintages of exceptional Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays as well as their Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc and Pinotage.
The menu was inspired by Olive Hamilton Russell's cookbook.
