Experience Tokara in all its autumn finery when this Stellenbosch family wine and olive estate, presents the annual Rare Plant Fair and opens its private farm gardens for public enjoyment on Saturday, 26 October 2024.

For one day only, a tented farmyard transforms and comes alive with diverse offerings from Rare Plant Fair vendors showcasing a wide selection of indigenous and exotic plants intended to delight both avid gardeners and plant admirers alike. Delicious meaty and vegetarian nourishment and refreshments alongside Tokara wine and olive products will sustain visitors at the Farmyard and offer a respite from sourcing that one elusive rare plant.

Visitors meandering the garden walks can enjoy a picnic delight on the big lawn. Pre-ordered Rare Fare Picnic Boxes prepared by the Tokara Delicatessen can be collected at the Boat House (about 400m downhill from the farmyard).

Sumptuous local delights in the adults’ Picnic Box for 2 @ R495 include a bottle of pre-selected Tokara wine and a Child’s Box @ R150 includes snack bites, juice and a game. The Rare Fare Picnic Boxes can only be pre-ordered via email at and be collected at the Boat House on the day.

The Tokara Rare Plant Fair and Autumn Open Garden 2024 will be open from 08h00 until 16h00. Entry at R50 per adult is payable on the day at the gate and is earmarked for a local charity.

All Tokara facilities – the Tasting Lounge, fine dining Restaurant and Delicatessen – will be open as usual on the Saturday.
