More about us
Withoek is a small boutique cellar on the outskirts of the Port capital of South Africa, Calitzdorp. The cellar is simplistic and traditional, producing wines true to its surroundings. The vineyards situated on the red hills just north of town are managed with care to ensure the production of quality grapes..
Withoek Cellar in Calitzdorp has renovated a small cottage, Herminashof, on the farm. The cottage sleeps 4 and has a shared bathroom, small kitchen with microwave, fridge and stove. A must is the braai area – wood will be provided. The cottage is less than 300 m from the centre of the town and still on the farm! Something everybody will like.
Do come and enjoy the Calitzdorp scenery with coffee at Handelshuis, lunch at The Red Coffee Pot and dinner at Lorenzo’s. Or order in pizza from the Pizza Place. Have a farmer’s night out at Bosvarkie or a quiet night/day in with a good book.
To book, please phone +27 83 655 8343 or e-mail the farm at email@example.com
