Established in 1989 in the temperate Hemel-enAarde Valley on 125 hectares (312 acres) of Walker Bay’s prime viticultural land, Bouchard Finlayson Vineyard and Winery is a small cellar dedicated to the production of quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Ever since releasing their first vintages, the name Bouchard Finlayson has been internationally synonymous with excellence.
Today, owned by the Red Carnation Hotels’ Tollman family and under the leadership of Victoria Tollman, founder Peter Finlayson and winemaker Chris Albrecht, 25 hectares (62 acres) of the estate are currently under vine with 50% devoted to the varietal for which Peter is most acclaimed – Pinot Noir.
Other cultivars under production include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Mourvédre and Barbera. With ingredients such as old world experience, new world innovation, winemaking talent, intelligent experimentation, the natural beauty of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, and a terroir and climate that is conducive to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Bouchard Finlayson is the ultimate recipe for truly exceptional experiences and prized memories.
