It took tough and determined individuals to cross the sheer barrier of mountains along the Western Cape but when they did, they discovered a warm fertile valley, shielded from the wind by the surrounding mountains and well-watered by the House River, ideal for fruit crops. Over a century later, a town was established in the valley and named Barrydale after a well-known businessman, James Barry.
Barrydale lies on the world’s longest wine route and apart from its superb wines, is renowned for the award-winning brandy produced here, the unique wild flowers, quality commercial fruit and quaint country restaurants.
A small town is often judged by the exchanges that occur between visitor and resident and in Barrydale, the townspeople greet their guests with a slow smile and have a generosity of spirit that touches the heart and leaves one with a desire to return.
