Hermanus, Western Cape
Cradled amid the hills of the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) valley,
Bouchard Finlayson is widely acclaimed as one of South Africa’s leading boutique wine cellars.
With a terroir defined by both ancient soils and a cool maritime climate, the vineyards of Bouchard Finlayson are famous for producing award-winning
Pinot Noir, elegant Chardonnay and terroir-driven Sauvignon Blanc, while inspired blends showcase the depth of skill and innovation in our winemaking team.
The Bouchard Finlayson cellar is conveniently located a scenic 90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, close to the world-famous whale-watching centre of Hermanus.
As part of a joint venture with Bedford Estates, we have installed beehives in the leafy enclave of Montague Street Gardens. The hives are home to over 20,000 bees that play an important role in supporting the surrounding ecosystem, as well as providing the beautifully fragrant local honey served at the hotel.
You can learn more about beekeeping and the role bees play at our hotel on our MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience.
We are continuing our efforts to phase out single-use plastics by 2022 and reducing our food waste in partnership with Winnow. We also help to support the local community as well as a variety of initiatives, and together with The TreadRight Foundation, we strive to #MakeTravelMatter.
