Exceptional & unique
An exquisite gem hidden in the heart of London, we are proud to be honoured as one of the World's Most Luxurious Hotels.
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.
Our Executive Chef Daniel Putz and his team make their mark, serving fine cuisine with an accent on modern British dishes. They balance their natural creativity with a superb collection of traditional comfort foods (organic and wherever possible, locally sourced).
From the Stables Bar which once housed the building’s horses, today a cosy nook with the feel of a well-loved gentleman’s club, to the Oratory, the original wood-panelled chapel, now a romantic, intimate dining space, to the stylishly monochrome Conservatory, our settings have a refined, welcoming and storied feel.
With over 300 wines, personally selected by our Head Sommelier, we showcase a superb selection of the established names of the Old World, the time-honoured Clarets and Burgundies, the majestic wines of Italy and Spain, the immaculate vintages that bear such magical names as Montrachet and d’Yquem. Add to these an equally fine representation of the great New World wines that have become classics in their own right, and you arrive at a cellar full of splendour for anyone wishing to sample the loftiest peaks of wine making. We are also proud to offer a collection of exceptional wines from our sister vineyard Bouchard Finlayson.
