Nature lovers are invited to experience Tokara in all its autumn splendour. The acclaimed Stellenbosch family wine and olive estate is opening its extensive farm garden to the public for the annual Rare Plant Fair on Saturday April 13 2019. 

Meander on tranquil walks, dotted with sculptures by local artists, while taking in the magnificent vistas over the large dam. Enjoy the dedicated indigenous garden, the textures in the cork oak forest, and the fresh scents wafting from the terraces of the picking garden. Other enchanting secrets worth discovering are the inspiring vegetable garden, wetlands, and the gurgling mountain stream flowing into soothing lily ponds. 

The wide variety of plants on sale range from indigenous flora, such as fynbos and proteas, to the more exotic. This popular event will appeal to all tastes. Besides coffee and other refreshments, Tokara will be well represented with their elegant wines and award winning extra virgin olive oils.

The fair is open from 9am until 4pm. Entry for adults is R50 in aid of a local charity. Children aged under 10 have free entry. The Tokara tasting lounge, restaurants, and delicatessen will be open as usual on the Saturday.
