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.
The entire venue can be yours for your big day with our exclusive use option. Your family and friends can truly make themselves at home in each of the 53 rooms and suites and enjoy each of the unique hotel spaces in peaceful seclusion. You'll receive a host of complimentary extras too, including valet services, music, a dedicated planner and a suite for the bride and groom. We will also assist in any styling themes you'd like to incorporate throughout.
With the whole place to yourself you and your guests can relax at leisure - some may like to start the day with a golf excursion while the bridal party enjoy a Champagne breakfast and have hair and makeup done in preparation for the ceremony to follow.
We always tailor each wedding so that it's a truly unique event that reflects your personal tastes and preferences. Licensed for civil ceremonies, the light and airy Pavilion surrounded by palm trees and flowers comfortably accommodate up to 100 wedding guests. Located near to the pool, it's an ideal space for your celebration.
Looking for something smaller? The Pool Deck provides a wonderful relaxed setting to host your ceremony for up to 50 people in a lovely shaded and secluded area.
The Pavilion is perfect for small gatherings of up to 20 guests with this traditional room providing warmth and intimacy with rich wood panelling adding to the elegant feel. It is particularly popular for blessings and vow renewals.
Afterwards, spend an unforgettable evening in The Chesterfield’s world-famous Leopard Lounge & Restaurant, where you will be struck by the fine dining, vibrant atmosphere and seductive sophistication, with talented pianists and live bands to keep you and your guests dancing into the night.
Our experienced wedding planners are equipped with all the skills, talent and enthusiasm required to make every moment utterly magical.
The ceremony itself is only one aspect of this special occasion and we cater for all the other celebrations you wish to host, including your Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding Reception, Bridal Shower and Farewell Brunch. We can also plan wonderful renewal of vows ceremonies.
