An Evening with Tokara Wines – AN IN PERSON EVENT

An Evening with Tokara Wines – AN IN PERSON EVENT

Tokara – At the centre of the Cape Winelands lies the Simonsberg mountain, a fynbos-rich massif, home to exceptional vineyards since the 17th century. It’s on the southern slopes, with unrivalled views over False Bay to Table Mountain, that you will find Tokara’s vineyards and olive groves.

Guests were indulged with an exceptional evening of extraordinary wines and sublime food, hosted by Tokara General Manager, Karl Lambour, at the beautiful Bel Punto restaurant in Umdloti KZN. With Covid-19 protocol in place and guests seated in their bubble, a wonderful evening unfolded in conversation of corks and cuisine, vines and vintages.
