One of South Africa’s most awarded boutique wine estates, Red Carnation Hotels' sister vineyard, Bouchard Finlayson, is one of South Africa’s most awarded boutique wine estates. Bouchard Finlayson lies in a scenic valley just an hour and a half from Cape Town, called Hemel-en-Aarde or Heaven-and-Earth. Framed by great fold mountains and breath-taking ocean views, it is one of the coolest wine-making regions in the Cape, with duplex soil structures and sun-facing slopes. The promise of the unique terroir is harnessed by winemaker Peter Finlayson in slow-ripened, flavour-rich wines of exceptional quality.
Bouchard Finlayson is globally acclaimed for producing the best Pinot Noir in South Africa, as well as exceptional Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs. The vineyards are surrounded by an indigenous floral conservancy alive with birdsong and wildflowers.
We are proud to showcase Bouchard Finlayson wines at each of our Red Carnation Hotels.
