B | Africa
Created in honour of our President and Founder Beatrice Tollman
The B | Africa product line was created in honour of Beatrice Tollman, Founder and President of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, who says: “The unique natural locations of each of the Red Carnation properties are encapsulated in our B | Africa products and treatments, which harness the essential, lifegiving properties of Mother Nature’s rich bounty to calm, detoxify, nourish and energise body, mind and spirit.”
Our sister vineyard lies in the lovely Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth), part of the Walker Bay wine region near Hermanus, South Africa’s whale watching capital. We are proud to serve Bouchard Finlayson, acclaimed worldwide for producing the best Pinot Noir in South Africa, as well as exceptional Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs.
Winemakers Alexander Grier and Nathan Valentine (overseen by Cellar Master Jeff Grier) craft a range of wines characterised by a strong reflection of Villiera's unique terroir and the retention of the distinct aromas and flavours of the different varietals. The Griers have been pioneers in the Cap Classique category and their innovative approach has been evident in other categories as well as in their business. The cellar is IPW certified and HACCP accredited and all Villiera wines are vegan friendly.
Savoir makes the extraordinary beds that feature in each bedroom in every one of our hotels. Made from completely natural materials with traditional, handcrafted techniques, Savoir beds are exceptional.
We are proud to partner with the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association, which provide travel resources for LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as promoting equality in tourism around the world.
