TOKARA Wine Estate

TOKARA Wine Estate

TOKARA Wine Estate is a picture perfect destination which offers visitors a unique combination of award-winning wines, brandy and olive oils, a gallery of fine art, a restaurant featuring one of South Africa’s leading chefs as well as a delicatessen.

TOKARA Wine Estate prides itself on making wines that are site specific. TOKARA’s grapes originate from two different sites, both owned and managed by TOKARA. Highlands in Elgin, affords ideal cool-climate white wine production and further opportunity to obtain distinctive variation. All TOKARA’s red varieties, on the other hand, are grown on its Stellenbosch property. This "home vineyard" area on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain harvests exceptional examples of various grape varietals and contributes to the greater portion of wine that fills TOKARA's 1000 ton cellar.

The premium ‘black label’ Reserve wines are the pinnacle of TOKARA – defined by origin and vintage expression. Above all, the approach is centred on consistent quality that is never compromised, and made possible through TOKARA’s unique integration of science and art. Making use of state of the art technology during the initial vineyard planning phases - in order to match cultivar to terroir - has enabled TOKARA to produce wines today which are from the finest site-specific vineyard blocks. Winemaker Miles Mossop’s creative flair and intimate knowledge, acquired over years of discerning individual components, culminates in an intricate blending process for each final wine in the Director’s Reserve and Reserve Collection ranges.

The winery, on the R310 outside Stellenbosch, is nestled among vineyards and olive groves on the crest of the Helshoogte Pass with sweeping views across False Bay and all the way to Table Mountain. TOKARA is open 9am-5pm weekdays and 10am-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
