It was a visit in 1997 that first drew Peter and Yvonne to the Groenfontein Valley, a secluded area north of Calitzdorp. Once settled, Peter Bayly Wines was officially established as an estate in 2000. Its workings are small and traditional. The 7ha farm has 1.2ha under vine, comprising the Portuguese varieties of Touriga Naçional, Tinta Barroca and Souzão. These are used to make still and port-style wines. Although Groenfontein lies deep within the semi-arid Klein Karoo, it is blessed with an abundance of water, sniping cold winters and mild summers – ideal for making distinctive wines.
