Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely setting but only 3 wines to taste and, personally, we found it was poorer value for money compared to many other wine estates we visited, particularly the ones in the Stellenbosch region.

What an amazing setting. We sat outside and enjoyed a wine tasting. Enjoying the view and the delicious smell of the eucalyptus wood burning in the thatched cottage. Delicious wine.

We visit many wine farms and buy a lot of wine. We have more than 2000 bottles in our off site cellar.
We were looking forward to tasting and purchasing some more Hamilton Russell wine in their most magnificent setting.
We were met by an unhelpful and uninspiring young lady. We asked questions about purchasing different vintages we got a no…. This is it. We asked for some water…. We were told they only had tap.
We never tasted anything bought 6 bottles of Chardonnay and left.
Highly disappointing. So many other beautiful wine farms with warm and welcoming service with stunning wine in the valley.

This was our highlight of our visit to Hemel en Aarde valley. Chantelle was our host and her knowledge and humour coupled with the wonderful wine was spectacular!

Honestly - one of the most amazing tastings I have ever experienced. Our host was SO knowledgeable, witty and attentive. Incredible to learn so much about the farm and the Hamilton-Russel history. An absolute MUST.

This is the first (or one of the first) wine farms as you head up the Hemel and Aarde valley. Fantastic views, and a bonus sighting of a family of the rare and endangered Blue Crane. Sadly, some of the winery staff were not so impressed as they almost ran us off the road when we slowed down to look at the cranes (we later saw the staff in the winery!). The tasting room itself is small, and there was only one person working so we ended up waiting for a while between the various tastings, as she had to travel from table to table. However, her knowledge of wine was very impressive - probably the best we encountered in the various wineries in this valley. We left with the impression that she was a wasted talent in the particular tasting room. The wines also did not impress. We found them very expensive and we certainly tasted better wines further up the valley. However, wine tastes are subjective, and we saw a few customer's pleading to be advised of their next wine release!
As a bonus, you can drive past the tasting room and head up the hill, on a dirt road, past "Braemar House" until you get to a T-junction. Stop there. From this spot, it is a short walk to the beacon at the top of the hill, and from there you have amazing views of the whole of Hermanus and the sea.
In fact, skip the wine tasting, and just go to the beacon.
