During your stay at Xigera, experience the world-class wines from our sister-property in South Africa: the Bouchard Finlayson boutique winery.
Situated in the Hemel-en-Aarde – ‘Heaven and Earth’ – valley, a two-hour drive from Cape Town, Bouchard Finlayson is widely hailed as the pioneer of Pinot Noir in South Africa, expressing the site, style and cool-climate terroir of the scenic valley set just above the coastal town of Hermanus.
Guests at Xigera can swirl and sip the estate’s complete range of these award-winning expressions of Pinot Noir; including the flagship Tête de Cuvée, produced only in exceptional vintages. Alongside Pinot Noir, Bouchard Finlayson has won a string of awards for its trio of expressive Chardonnays, and is acclaimed for both its Sauvignon Blanc and inspired red blend, Hannibal.
At Xigera Safari Lodge the complete Bouchard Finlayson portfolio of wines is available by the bottle, but also served by the glass using the Coravin Wine Preservation System.
