The tasting here is R100 for 8 wines and 1 brandy to taste. They offered some of their home grown kalamata olives to enjoy during the tasting and they're great! I enjoyed many of their wines. Nesh knows his wines and gave us lots of informative details about them. The venue itself has beautiful panoramic views. The restaurant next door... More

If you would like to overlook the mountain while tasting some great wine, here is the place! There is also a restaurant which is very well located but I didn't get the chance to sit there.

We has a 3 course lunch at Tokara. I had the French-Indo fusion to start and my wife had the Baked Alaska. We both had the Duck breast mains and then chocolate deserts. We ate in so many luxurious restaurants in South Africa but this was easily the best. The flavours were just right. For example the oysters were perfectly... More

We are wine lovers and we only had 1 day for stellenbosch and franschhoek. This was one of our favorites wine estates. The tasting goes a bit slow so but you can enjoy some great views meanwhile!

We visited this place today as it is one of the top venues in Stellenbosch and we had very good friends whom we wanted to spoil with a great wine tasting experience. The atmosphere on arrival was cold and the staff unfriendly and sullen with no information offered except the name of the wine. The place and the building looks... More

Tokara is a big wine estate with amazing views. It is very beautiful and the Delikatessen is great for lunch, especially with kids. The wine tasting was a little bit boring. The view from the tasting room was great but the tasting was without charm. The only package is with 8 wines, 1 dessert wine and 1 brandy. I personally... More

Another stunning estate in Stellenbosch! Too bad about the service though... We walked in and were seated at a "reserved" table where the people who had reserved it arrived an hour after we did and we shared a table with strangers. Not a big deal really, just a small irritation. The problem was that we were only there for the... More

Such a funky wine farm. On the beautiful Helshoogte drive. Stunning decor and vistas of vineyards, Tokara has exceptional wines and top notch food. A definite place to visit, for locals and international travelers that love wine and food!
