Not in vain is Paarl termed the agricultural capital of the Boland. Situated in the fruitful and water rich Berg River Valley, Paarl has a well established industrial sector which relies heavily on industries supplying the needs of agriculture, while the Western Cape Agricultural Union has also established its head office at Paarl.

long been established. The National road from Cape Town to Johannesburg runs

Zomerlust has close ties with the history of the
Paarl Rock Brandy Cellar, since the latter was founded by Abraham
Pieter de Villiers in 1856. The original Paarl Wine and Brandy
Company was situated across the road from the Zomerlust guest
house and legend has it that an underground pipe linked the maturation
casks in the cellar to a tap, where guests were entertained in
grand style. Today this area has been restored into a cosy pub, Die Kraan. Accustomed to entertaining in grand style,
the family could offer their own finely matured connoisseur brandy
to their guest simply at the turn of a tap!
