Join us for a special wine pairing dinner featuring Hamilton Russell Vineyards, South African vineyards owned and operated by Wharton alum, Anthony Hamilton Russell.  The estates' specialties include highly individual, terroir-driven Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinotage, a wine unique to South Africa, made under the estates' Southern Right label.  Anthony (WG'90) returned to his roots in South Africa with his international education and experience. At the helm of his family's vineyards, he has built his brands into internationally recognized and acclaimed tours de force, widely regarded among the finest in the New World.

A personal video invite from Anthony Hamilton Russell.

Anthony is flying in from South Africa to lead us through a tasting of 6 of his wines. Carefully selected dishes will be paired with each wine.  Vegetarian food options will be available upon request.

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

“Today the winery (Hamilton Russell Vineyards) is one of the most recognized brands in the U.S. market, and rightfully so, as it has become the flag bearer for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from South Africa.”

Peter Newton, Bordeaux Index

“Hamilton Russell Vineyards is arguably South Africa’s most famous wine estate ….. Elegant Pinot Noir very much in a Burgundian style.”
