Located in a remote and beautiful valley, nestled between Bain’s Kloof and the Groenberg Mountain Range, Doolhof offers an amazing experience for both winelovers and people interested in history. Huguenots started to plant grapes as early as 1728, and left behind them magnificent Cape Dutch heritage buildings. Do not hesitate to wander around, order a picnic basket from the tasting center and take the vineyard trail, you won't regret it! Should you want to stay longer, book your night at the adjacent guesthouse Grand Dedale...Amazing!

Did You Know...? Doolhof means labyrinth is Afrikaans. You'll definitely want to be trapped here!
