The Tradouw Pass

The Tradouw Pass (which means Womens Path in the old Khoi language) is a 16 kilometer drive through an altitude range of 219 meters through some of the most beautiful and rugged mountain scenery on offer in the Langeberg. This pass is undoubtedly in the Top 20 tarred passes in the Western Cape on an overall rating. The pass joins the towns of Barrydale and Swellendam and was originally built by Thomas Bain. Extensively revamped in recent times, the engineering teams did an outstanding job of preserving the environment and retaining Thomas Bain’s character in the design and supporting stonework. This is truly one of those mountain passes that you must drive. 

Barrydale Hand Weavers

Barrydale Hand Weavers is a project aimed at providing a skill to people who might otherwise be unemployed, and who now are able to provide for their families through the sale of their products. The weavers are encouraged to use their design skills by introducing colour and pattern into the woven products. This flexibility allows us to bring you a unique range of pure cotton products in vibrant colours as well as in earthy, natural tones.

Joubert-Tradouw Cellar

In 1982 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Chardonnay cultivars were planted at the Joubert-Tradauw farm. However, it was only in the late 1990’s that the old farm building was restored and turned into a wine maturation cellar.

The fermentation cellar was built in 1998 and the first grapes harvested in 1999. And the R62 Merlot / Cabernet Blend was born! This very popular wine is produced with approximately 3000 cases per annum.

This cellar is commited to producing elegant, handcrafted wine that can be enjoyed at any times. The grapes are hand picked and then naturally fermented, unfiltered and matured for at least a year. The wines carry layers of flavour and aroma. With two separate labels, namely the self titled Joubert-Tradouw and Unplugged 62 you’ll be spoilt for choice
