Alongside our award-winning wines, the Bouchard Finlayson estate is home to an olive grove that each year produces a small quantity of extra virgin olive oil. In addition, an innovative bee-keeping project within the estate conservancy produces uniquely scented fynbos honey.
Both the estate’s olive oil and honey are served to guests staying at the global properties in The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, as well as aboard the ships of Uniworld River Cruises. A limited quantity may be made available for sale at cellar door, when stocks allow.
