Breede River Valley Reviews
So green and lovely wine farms in the area.
The Calabash Bush Bar and the Fruit Farms nearby.
Mostly enjoyed the climbing routes.
It's natural beauty and olives!
Were not there
Dried Fruit Factory Shop in Montagu is well worth a visit.
Wine and beer tasting. Sight seeing. The stars at night. Different activities.
All the wine farms are a treat to visit. The people are so friendly and welcoming. They really embrace tourism and make you want to come back.
More info about Breede River Valley
The Breed River Valley is an immensely fertile region flanked by two towering mountain ranges and a river flowing through its centre. Livestock, wine and fruit farms along the river are neatly divided, creating a patchwork of coloured hues, the valley completed by pretty little towns lining the roads, all spotless and welcoming.
The warm valley floor and hot sun is a perfect recipe for the cultivating of sweet wines and ideal too, for fruit growing. Temperatures rise into the 30s during summer and in the winter the days are crisp, averaging 14° Celsius.
The valley is named after the Breede River, breede meaning wide in Dutch. Farming the valley increased markedly in the 1830s when an intrepid entrepreneur, Joseph Barry, first sent a boat down the river to deliver provisions. He and his nephews established a trade route on the river and today the town of Barrydale honours their name.
