Tokara, the acclaimed family wine and olive estate, has earned its place as a sought after, all-encompassing Stellenbosch destination with a listing in the prestigious World’s Best Vineyards Top 50 2022.
One of three South African wine farms to make the Top 50 list this year, Tokara, ranked 47th, shares the distinction with Creation (38th) and Klein Constantia (39th). Italy tops the 2022 list with Antinori nel Chianti Classico in Tuscany taking the number one spot.
“Moving up from Top 100 to Top 50 this year in this prestigious international ranking, is an incredible achievement for the entire Tokara team. In addition to our breath-taking views, rolling vineyards and olive groves, we offer visitors the complete Stellenbosch Winelands experience from contemporary architecture, local art, magnificent walks, delicious cuisine with a distinctly South African flavour, and of course our world class wines and olive oil,” says GM Karl Lambour.
This is the 4th year of the World’s Best Vineyards, the sister competition to the renowned World’s Best Restaurants. The Top 50 list, announced in Mendoza, Argentina’s wine capital, was compiled from nominations by a global academy of voters comprising 600 leading wine aficionados, sommeliers and international wine and travel writers from different regions across the globe. The members individually nominate their seven favourite wine farms in preferential order. The 2022 list includes vineyards from 20 countries across all six continents.
