We were told about this winery by friends in Joburg. The wine was hard to source so we decided to ring and arrange a private tour. What a delight to go there and see the love and care that went into every bottle. Also to appreciate and understand the technical expertise which was behind the growing, production and bottling of these superb wines. It goes without saying that the "tasting" was something special.

We drank De Toren’s Fusion V in the Netherlands. Wonderful ‘three dimensional’ wine, bit heavy, but we love it. Looked at their YouTube-video’s to be a bit informed. Have set a date and got a warm welcome and excellent tour by Anja Bekker.
What a remarkable winemaker, full of passion!
Thank you, appreciate the time you gave us. Really look forward to order your wine in Holland

We left Cape Town a day early bc this is my husbands favorite wine and they do not take weekend appointments. Imagine our delight that when we arrived, the very nice receptionist told us that the owner Emile would be giving us our tour. A nice lady from Jo Burg popped in and we invited her to join our tour. we also had the vineyard manager with us.
Emile was so interesting and has such a passion for his wines. We learned so much about the soil and all the special ways they treat their grapes. It was no wonder it is our favorite, the care that goes into these wines. It was such a unique tour and tasting and we left with a lot of great wine and fantastic memories. Thank you so much Emile for the lovely tour . De Toren will forever be our favorite. I can't wait to give my husband the key to the Book XVII.

It was 2 years ago on my 40th but remains the best vineyard experience that I have had. A personal touch delivered by the vineyard owner, Emil, with a superb tasting session at the end, Cannot wait to go back again. Highly recommended as part of your trip to the Western Cape area!

So firstly you have to book a wine tour by appoint only.

This is a private farm that is exclusive. The experience matches the brand of the farm.

The experience starts of from the history of the owner, the various blocks only two primary wine blocks, harvesting process and then a tour of the entire wine cellar. And finally a cosy area for tasting prestige wines.

Take note this is not a cheap wine. It's relatively expensive wine that matches the brand.

I would highly recommend a visit to this farm and if you do buy and enjoy the wine it's money well spent!
