The power of passionDiscover the world of Red Carnation
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.
The hotel’s heated outdoor pool is lined with leafy palms and flowers, in the evening lanterns light the way for after-hours swimmers. There’s also a hot tub and plenty of pool loungers to stretch out with a good book while sipping on a skinny cocktail.
For those looking to work out, we offer guests discounted access ($10 per day) to Palm Beach Fitness nearby. Our team will also be delighted to organise an appointment for you at one of Palm Beach’s world-class spas, or organise a day’s sea fishing, golf, scuba diving, jet-skiing or paragliding.
Your wellness journey continues in the glamorous Leopard Lounge & Restaurant, where sustainably sourced fish is the special of the day. Try a Floridian oyster, grown in Apalachicola Bay, crab from across the US, line-caught Pacific tuna, and the True Dover Sole, caught from the Strait of Dover and responsibly transported to Palm Beach within 24-hours of being caught.
