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.
Here the wide wooden decks are lit by campfires and candlelight, the tables laid with fine linen for guests to enjoy an authentic South African braai – barbecue – as the lodge chefs serve up a generous buffet of grilled meats, traditional salads, fire-baked breads and local desserts.
As the stars wheel above, and the moon floats above ancient mountain peaks, raise a glass – of South African wine, of course – to another unforgettable day in Africa.
