Tokara excels with 96 points in world’s leading olive oil guide

TOKARA, the family owned Stellenbosch wine and olive estate, has been included in the world’s most authoritative international guide for extra virgin olive oil, Flos Olei 2022, with a rating of 96 points.

This comprehensive annual guide, now in its 13th year, ranks the 500 best extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) producers in the world from 55 countries. Available in two versions, Italian and English, and Chinese and English, this international guide is dedicated to EVOO producers around the globe.

Tokara enjoys recognition as one of South Africa’s top producers of world-class EVOO. The farm’s olive oil journey began in 2000 with primarily Tuscan olive varieties. Today, four cold pressed EVOOs are produced – two single varietal oils and two more intense multi-varietal blends.



The top tier Tokara Premium EVOO is carefully blended to bring together the best characteristics of Coratina, Leccino, Frantoio and Mission varieties. You will find notes of olive leaf, rocket, artichoke and a lovely herbaceous character. This premium olive oil also enjoys acclaim on home turf with a Gold medal from the 2021 SA Olive Awards.
