I've popped in by Tokara a few times but only recently did the wine tasting. The estate is beautiful but also very relaxed and you're made to feel at home. At the tasting area the huge fire was burning because it was a cold day and it made the room feel inviting. We did a wine tasting and the staff... More

The setting of Tokara is wonderful, I'm the shadow of the mountains but with a beautiful view down over the city. The perfectly manicured grounds make for a very upmarket feel. The wine on offer here is very nice indeed, and the staff are both knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth visiting.

The meal was AMAZIIIING. Never eaten these association of food before. A mindblowing experience for your palet in a great place. If they have that "suggestion" again, you definitely have to try the smoked salmon ice cream with the trout.

Stunning view from the Helshoogte Pass down to the coast out of the Tasting Room, very few places will be able to beat this in the Stellenbosch area. One of the few that does free wine tastings also and we were a group of 4, free olives from the farm was also added when enquired. Lovely range of wines, we... More

Excellent wine and free wine tasting! Loved the service, atmosphere and views. Pity the wine was a bit pricey - $30 for a bottle of good wine? It's the same price as Australia! Would still visit again if back in SA.

I think it is a very nice estate with good wines. The wine tasting setup is nice but I just feel like the people behind the counter, pouring the wine, can tell a little more about the wine, farm, grapes etc. They just say the name of the wine and pour it - not the way a tasting should go...
