More about us

The farm Doornkraal lies at the foot of the Swartberg range in the Klein Karoo, a part of South-Africa also known by its original name, Kannaland. Here the Le Roux family has been farming for generations. Doornkraal’s basic philosophy is that wine is a gift from God to enhance life. Wine was made for man and not the other way around.


Doornkraal Farm Stall

Doornkraal Padstal has become a landmark attraction for Klein Karoo wines and unique local farm produce. The farm stall is situated 8km outside De Rust on your way to Oudtshoorn, as part of the R62 route. The wine tasting venue stocks the total sum of 20 wine producers from the Klein Karoo at cellar prices. So, no need to drive around, since this is the only wine one-stop in the region. Truly a new world to be discovered, since most Klein Karoo wine farms are boutique wine farms producing the most magnificent wines, one of the best kept secrets in the Western Cape.

Light snacks, local sweets, pastries and pies from the farm, olive products and cheese from the region, various jams, chutneys, and unique products produced at the farm Doornkraal (e.g. Karoo-bossie smoked salt and pumpkin seeds, wine vinegar, quince cheese and moskonfyt) make a visit to Doornkraal Padstal an unforgettable experience. “Tante Maria” recipes’ from many years ago are honored with every product leaving the farm, you can be assured that you will taste the charm and warm heartedness’ of the Klein Karoo in every product.
