About
The farm has been the jewel of the Bovlei valley for three centuries and has had many owners. The current farm dates from 1993 with the decision to grow high quality wine grapes. The first vines were planted in 1995. Since the present owners acquired it in 2003, they have built a winery, tasting room and storage complex. In 2005, the farm was given Estate status.

Great Location and Great Wine
Jun 2021
Doolhof is a very special and beautiful place. They have great selection of wine that you can have with cheese and meat platters or even a plate of chips. Its such a beautiful place and very laid back, but full of quality. They have a 3,8KM river walk that I would recommend to anyone, we have done it with our small kids age 5 an 8 and both completed it comfortably. Its such a beautiful place really recommend to anyone who loves nature and loves wine.

Lunch & Winr

We were staying on the estate; stopped in to do wine tasting and have a bite to eat. Lovely location, pretty outdoor seating, attentive-enough hosts. Not a very informative tasting experience, but lunch was nice.

White on white tasting experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
It was our first visit to Doolhof,but not our last! The tasting room is impressive with all the white touches: white ostrich leather high back chairs, white roof, chandeliers, white washed cupboard and mirrors.
The wine is served in a circle, resembling a labyrinth (doolhof). The wines were excellent and ample variants to choose from.
The road to the farm is beautiful.
Very friendly staff.

Great tasting with Mark. Great stories and got to taste a few extra wines that were opened after a pairing the previous day. Hidden in the mountains.

Doolhof was bathed in autumn wonder this afternoon and before we knew it it was time to leave. Oh how sad. Staff were lovely and cows soo cute. Cheese and meat platter was generous and tasty. Wide variety of wines one of which is sure to appeal to you.

Wonderful wine
Mar 2019 • Friends
My cousin and I had a couple of hours to spare around Wellington so headed down the Bovlei valley to one of my favourite South African wineries. Doolhof did not disappoint. Far away from the main tourist routes, it's a peaceful and stunning setting. It's not often we cannot fault any of the wines we chose to taste. From my favourites, single vineyards malbec and sauvignon blanc, to the lady in white. Everything tasted superb. A wonderful start to the day. And half price cases of sauv blanc to take away. Just need to find more suppliers back in the UK now!!

The tent floor was dirty. The "pool" was not clean on arrival and had to be clean. The manager was not very friendly on a phone call the day before arrival. We just want to find out how check in worked and he was very unfriendly.
