About Us

Located on a historic piece of land along the Piekenierskloof Pass, is a white building filled with many stories.

Stories of Pikemen, toll fees and a nurse with her first aid cabinet. The building acted as a supply station and pitstop to many travellers since 1864.

Still keeping their character, the buildings have been transformed to offer a variety of unique experiences for the whole family, dogs included.

Back in the days the beautiful Piekenierskloof Tasting Room used to be the original winery and the Carmién Tea Shop contained a waterhole for donkeys and horses of travellers.

De Tol, probably the oldest farm stall on the N7 is now proudly owned by Bergendal, our family farm situated 8km further along the Paleisheuwel Road.

De Tol Farm Deli

Situated in the heart of citrus-world, freshly squeezed orange juice in winter is a must when you visit De Tol Farm Deli, or treat yourself to the best cup of coffee along the N7. Our signature roosterkoek is freshly made daily and can be enjoyed with a variety of toppings or served with our popular cheese platter. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon under majestic oak trees.

Our offerings are local and as artisanal as possible. We offer the highest quality farm produce at affordable prices and our take-home ranges include fresh fruit in season, dried fruit, naturally fed Angus beef and lamb, directly from our family farm, Bergendal.

Visit us not only for old favourites but for exciting new offerings that we are known for.


The Piekenierskloof tasting room provides the perfect all-weather opportunity to try all that we have on offer, from our fan-favourite Piekenierskloof Grenache Noir, to the Stonedance and Six Hats ranges.

In summertime, take refuge from the heat and cool down with a bottle of white, or join us inside on chilly days and warm your hands next to the hearth – there’s plenty of room for everyone. Our wine hosts will make sure that your glass never runs dry!

Indulge in a delicious meal that would make any gourmet chef proud, paired with your favourite Piekenierskloof wine.

So come, take a load off, spend some quality time with family and friends on the lawn with a glass of wine,and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Piekenierskloof
