100 Princes Street
With meticulous care and attention to the listed building’s interior, we will embrace its history and heritage
Renowned for its passionate staff and thoughtful service, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection is to open a hotel in Scotland for the first time, with the aim of making it the number one hotel in Edinburgh. We plan to respectfully renovate 100 Princes Street, in front of Edinburgh Castle, transforming it into a highly exclusive retreat on Edinburgh’s most famous street.
With uninterrupted views of Edinburgh Castle, 100 Princes Street will replicate the boutique atmosphere of sister hotel 41, the most-loved hotel in London and TripAdvisor’s number one hotel in the English capital for over 10 years.
With meticulous care and attention to the listed building’s interior, we will embrace its history and heritage, using the finest local artisans and suppliers. 100 Princes Street will reopen in 2022 as Red Carnation Hotels’ 19th property worldwide, with 30 exceptional bedrooms and an Executive Lounge overlooking the Castle.
Bouchard Finlayson is a family-owned farm, and at the heart of the estate is The Homestead, the residence of the Tollman family. Set on a hill above the cellar, and surrounded by lush indigenous gardens, in its white-washed walls and thatched roof The Homestead draws inspiration from the timeless Cape Dutch architectural style.
This modern interpretation of the Cape’s architectural heritage is the work of acclaimed architect Anton De Kock, and a perfect reflection of the Bouchard Finlayson philosophy of celebrating tradition while embracing innovation. Indoors, the walls are graced by the Tollman family’s remarkable collection of art from the 19th and 20th centuries, creating an elegant space in which to host visiting wine industry agents and colleagues.
Our charming cellar-door tasting room welcomes visitors daily, with a range of unique experiences for guests to discover the wines of Bouchard Finlayson. Tutored tastings offer a choice of wine flights, while cellar tours and unforgettable vintage tastings are available with prior reservation. Extend your visit with a generous platter of local cheese and charcuterie, enjoyed on the sunny terrace overlooking the valley.
In contrast to the homely charm of the cellar, the clean lines and minimalism of the production cellar are testament to our winemaking team’s relentless pursuit of quality. Every step of the process happens on-site, from meticulous fruit sorting at harvest time through to fermentation, ageing, bottling and distribution. A space where tradition meets innovation, in the ongoing evolution of Bouchard Finlayson.
We put sustainability at the heart of our operations, especially when it comes to conserving our natural landscape. The farm’s 25 hectares of vineyard account for 20 percent of the estate, with the rest, fynbos conservancy.Discover more
