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.
There is a wealth of opportunities within a 20-mile radius of The Laggan. Take a trip to the top of the Cairngorm Mountain on the funicular railway and dine at the highest restaurant in the UK, taking in the dramatic views of the surrounding areas, or experience one of the many distilleries on the whisky trails.
For the more energetic, enjoy the mountain bike trails and on many local estates, try organised clay shooting, quad bikes, fishing, walking or cycling. Sailing and windsurfing are also available on some lochs. In the winter months visitors can capture the beauty of the mountains blanketed in glittering frost and snow, and try skiing or snowboarding.
