Nice view, nice building. But service bad. They mixed wines in the same glasses for tasting. They don’t have tapas. In my opinion good marketing but na option. In my opinion You can go only for the view. The wines are middle range.

Excellent wines available on the estate for export. Can be purchased by locals, not available in stores. Directors reserve is excellent.

I really liked the wine tasting at Tokara, in particular the Pinotage. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was beautiful. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend a stop, and if I'm ever in the area I will visit.

Beautiful, modern estate. We enjoyed the views, wines and delicious olives on the balcony. Leroy gave us a good explanation of the wines. Walk up the hill over to the selfie platform!
