If you love good food, great wine, and unparalleled views, clear your schedule and escape to Tokara. Nestled on the upper slopes of the Simonsberg mountain, Tokara’s vineyard and olive grove overlook two of mother nature’s most awe-inspiring sights, False Bay and Table Mountain.
Because of their unique location, the climate, geography and soils combine to produce perfect grapes. These grapes are then hand-picked and gently transported to their state-of-the-art cellar, where winemakers transform the fruit into award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc wines.
Tokara rests on the Stellenbosch side of the Banghoek Valley, between 350m and 550m above sea level. The combination of altitude, deep, rich, decomposed granite soils and the unique aspect of the property make for exciting variability between the vineyard sites.
Soil profiles are of weathered sandstone and decomposed granite, the combination lending structure, perfume and longevity to their wines Their Highlands vineyard lies south of Stellenbosch in Elgin, a cool-climate area atop Sir Lowry’s Pass. Soils are predominantly Table Mountain sandstone which imparts an ethereal scent to our Sauvignon Blanc and Cap Classique sparkling wine.
