Tokara – Stellenbosch Wine Tasting
On what was supposed to be our last day in Cape Town – (our flight was scheduled for 11pm that night but was later canceled! yessss) – we decided to drown our have-to-leave sorrows with wonderful wines from the Stellenbosch wine region. We checked out of our Kommetjie house and drove immediately to Tokara in the Helshoogte Valley. First impression: HELL YEAH.
The grounds are stunning with a combination of ancient and modern art tucked into unexpected places. The hillsides are covered with stair-stepping vineyards & sweeping views across the valley. The restaurant / tasting room are tastefully appointed to lend attention to the surrounds instead of the space itself and … the scene was set for an incredible lunch!
So gorgeous, check it out!
