We visited Doolhof for a wine tasting and lunch. The wine tasting is such a treat, laid out in a circle, with labels. We had the cheese and meat platter, that was plenty for 2 people. A real treat. The airconditioning inside was very welcome.

We had to go and stock our red wines we discovered this Estate a few months ago and fell in love with their red wines. We went back to purchase a few more. What a great find.
