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 menus showcase delicious vegan and vegetarian options, such as our delectable heritage beetroot with goats’ cheese mousse; stuffed baby squash with chestnuts and kale and cashew pesto; and butter roasted cauliflower with Cornish gouda fondue. Carefully crafted skinny cocktail options are also available in the Terrace Bar.
Produced by the 250,000 honey bees that live in the four beehives on our rooftops, our delicious honey is served at breakfast and features in several of our signature cocktails. It’s just one small part of the sustainability programme at The Chesterfield, as we work to improve the wellbeing of our staff, guests and the wider world.
