More about us
The Barrydale region has a long history of brandy making and Barrydale Cellar has built on this to become one of South Africa’s top pot still brandy producers, competing with – and beating – international brands at international level. But there is more than brandy to the cellar.
Its Barrydale range of wines carries the name of the country’s smallest region of origin, Tradouw. Grapes for the range are grown on a mere 15km x 3km, a unique, fruitful pocket in the breathtaking Langeberg Mountains where vines flourish naturally. The result is a taste that is undeniably Barrydale.
At the beginning of 2005, the cellar joined forces with the neighbouring Ladismith Cellar and formed Southern Cape Vineyards, an umbrella company, to share and exchange technology and capacity to make the most – and the best – of the resources available to them.
