Led by General Manager Dirk Crockart, with 20 years of service, The Montague is a family of passionate people, with a warm, inclusive ethos that embraces everything we do. We are proud to be a part of the family-owned and run Red Carnation Hotel Collection, and strive to create unique and memorable experiences for our guests.
We enjoy warmly welcoming our guests back to The Montague, remembering details from previous stays, preparing special treats for our younger guests and V.I.Ps (Very Important Pets), and providing warm and caring service. Our team is proud to have worked together for many years, and is always willing to go the extra mile, creating unique experiences and adding thoughtful touches to enhance our guests’ stay.
For more than three decades Bouchard Finlayson has pioneered, and perfected, the art of crafting world-class Pinot Noir. Today, our cellar produces wines that are a true expression of the complex soils, cool climate and maritime location that define our remarkable vineyards. Discover wines with the purity and elegance of this Old World cultivar, married with the vibrancy and vigour of the New World.
While celebrating the Burgundian traditions of winemaking, Bouchard Finlayson has been quick to embrace innovation. This includes our evolution to vegan-friendly wine production and modern closures, alongside a sharpened focus on sustainability across the estate.
Our founder Peter Finlayson pioneered the planting of vineyards in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley, and today works alongside winemaker Chris Albrecht in crafting our boutique portfolio of terroir-driven wines.
Bouchard Finlayson is open daily for visitors, with an array of experiences on offer at our charming cellar-door tasting room. Skilled wine ambassadors are on hand to guide you through our portfolio of wines, with a selection of tutored tasting experiences on offer. These are best enjoyed with our generous cheese and charcuterie platters. Cellar tours are available on request, and visitors are encouraged to enjoy the self-guided walking trails on our fynbos nature conservancy.
