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.
We believe strongly in sourcing fresh produce from our local producers, as well as growing much of our ingredients in our own gardens and polytunnels. These are transformed into delicious works of art in our six restaurants and three bars, at the skilled hands of Executive Chef Philippe Farineau and his wonderful team.
This long-established tradition has been wonderfully preserved at Ashford Castle since 1868.Explore more
