Bouchard Finlayson Vineyards was founded by Peter Finlayson and the late Paul Bouchard, well know French Winemaker, in 1989. Peter Finlayson was a pioneer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Hemel en Aarde Valley near Hermanus on the Atlantic Coast in the Overberg.
Peter today is assisted by Chris Albrecht, a much awarded young winemaker, who grew up in the Winelands. Chris has worked in wineries in California, New Zealand and France and has become an important asset in the 5 years he has been on the Estate.
Peter Finlayson and Vicki Tollman, whose family now owns the Estate run a superbly laid out wine Estate with vineyards close planted in the Burgundian Style
