Tokara Winery

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Stellenbosch, South Africa

Tokara is a family-run estate founded in the 1990s, with a focus on quality wines and experiences. Located in the Simonsberg valleys on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, the estate seeks to tell the story of the mountainous terrain in its wines. Guests can enjoy tastings by the fire in a grand lounge with panoramic views of the hillsides, ocean, and Table Mountain in the distance. Families are well-catered for, with activities and play space for children, and a variety of wines for the adults.

Tokara produces white, rosé, and red Bordeaux-inspired still wines, a traditional method sparkling, and an XO brandy. The Delicatessen serves breakfast and lunch, with many of Tokara’s own produce used, including their award-winning olive oil. The wood-fired pizzas are a popular choice with guests. The restaurant, bedecked in William Kentridge tapestries, offers à la carte and tasting menu options of up to six courses, ideal for tasting alongside the full range of Tokara wines.

The estate’s vineyards were first planted with Bordeaux favorites Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, followed by Chardonnay, Shiraz, and the national star Chenin Blanc. The wines are vinified by the specific parcels of land they came from before being blended. The “Premium” wines come from across the estate, with single vineyard expressions in the “Reserve” range and then a “Director’s Reserve” set of exclusive blends between carefully selected parcels.

The estate’s sleek stone winery lures guests in, where they can catch a glimpse of the vineyard’s traditional methods teamed with new technology in the gravity-fed winery. The jungle gym is embellished with local artworks and the occasional peacock, providing a picturesque backdrop for a family day out.
