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.
In addition to contributing to the staff retirement fund, Bouchard Finlayson provides essential staff support in the form of housing, water and electricity subsidies. We also cover the financial burden of children’s school tuition, healthcare and transportation to work. Recent additions to staff facilities on the farm include the construction of a new Recreation Room for our farm workers, including cloak rooms and a self-catering style cafeteria.
As a supporter of the Hermanus Rainbow Trust, Bouchard Finlayson assists in providing crucial health, social and education services to underprivileged communities within the Overberg region. Bouchard Finlayson also makes monthly financial contributions to support the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pre-School. In the broader hospitality industry we support ongoing professional development via the Bouchard Finlayson Wine & Spirit Education Trust Scholarship.
