Amazing wines!

Loved all of their wines and the view is to die for. Very friendly staff and a nice area to taste in. Cant wait to go back to try the restaurant.

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...

Tokara is such a stunning stop along the wine route; I would recommend it to anyone visiting the cape. The staff is friendly, the wine is great and the art is a plus. Some of the better known South African artists are hanging on the walls... Awesome!!! The building is a beautiful example of contemporary design. The large glass curtain... More

The Tokara was one of the most beautiful wineyards that we have seen during our one day tour. Beside many wines they have also various olive oils you can taste. You can also sit ouside on the terrace while tasting wine and enjoy the beautiful view. The buildings are relative new and have a nice modern design which fit perfectly... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch at the deli. Most mouth watering burger ever. Superb wine with service and atmosphere to match. Had no booking yet we were quickly accommodated. Highly recomended.

We made a brief stop at Tokara’s modern tasting room. Although we did not absolutely love the wines, we did appreciate the free tastings as well as the change to try the brandy. The server was knowledgeable and friendly, making this a nice tasting experience. We have a lot more information about our time wine-tasting in South Africa on our... More

We unfortunately tried Tokara during a weekend. The place was packed and the majority of people were very drunk. We just about managed to find a spot at the tasting bar, but the staff were disorganised and trying to deal with the drunk customers. There was a large amount of glass being broken by people knocking them off the bar.... More
