The food was delicious and well presented. The staff were knowledgeable and... More

Stopped here for about an hour on our tour of the area. Modern winery, large tasting room with beautiful views over the vineyards. Our hostess was very pleasant and in our time here we were able to sample the majority of Tokara's wines, whilst discussing the merits of the local industry as opposed to back home in Australia. We bought... More

We were lucky enough to have a private tour through someone we met on holiday. A real behind the scenes tour including going into the library where they keep a few bottles of each vintage, wonderful insight. The tour was followed by some wine and brandy tasting given by some very informative staff. Following the tasting I have ordered some... More

This place is a must see and taste experience. If you only have a short time to visit Stellenbosch, this is the place. It is a great stop on the Garden Route

Tokara is a nice winery in Stellenbosh. The place is really well decorated, with some space dedicated to wine paintings, that are really beautiful. Concerning the wines, try Tokara Director Reserve.

3 of us ate at Tokara last night, and they got everything right! Great menu, great service in a lovely location. My starter of Baked Alaska Rainbow Trout was stunning

Didn't have a plan to visit any specific wineyard, and we just walked in. They had free wine tasting and the folks there were warm to show us the their wine collection and explain the complete wine extraction process. We got entry to their historical wine chamber.

The wines and oils were very good. We started with wine tasting and ordered 3 types of red wines. We were surprised that they didn't change the glass after ordering the 2nd and 3rd type of red wine. we were then also shocked when they as well poured the white wine in the same glass from the red wine.

The above says it all really. Arrive early for a tasting, browse the co-located deli, before sitting down for lunch/dinner. Great place to watch the sun set over the valley. The wines are consistently of a great standard, some exceptional.
