A working farm, vineyard and Fynbos Reserve

The cool, frost-free climate and southerly aspect gives rise to a slow and extended grape ripening period thus lending itself to the production of exceptional wines. Temperatures in the growing season average between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius. The vineyards are planted on southerly slopes ensuring exposure to the cool sea breezes aiding colour and tannin formation on the red grapes and acidity on the white grapes.

Barton Vineyard offers three bedroom villas such as the Dove Villa, Plover Villa and Blue Crane Villa, a four-bedroom villa, Heron Villa and a two bedroom villa, Hammerkop.
