Don’t miss this event: Tokara Olive Oil Tasting & Tapas Lunch

Renowned for exceptional wines, Tokara also crafts award-winning extra-virgin olive oils. The Olive Shed and olive groves are situated on the steepest slopes of the farm, known historically as De Hel – the origin of the name of the nearby Helshoogte Pass. The olives are cold pressed on the same day they are picked. Since 2001, when just 500 bottles were produced, production has increased, but demand still frequently outstrips supply of these award-winning oils.

Come and experience the exceptional quality of this liquid gold. A Tokara Olive Oil tasting will be followed by a Tapas lunch under the vines in the Oude Werf Restaurant’s courtyard.

The tasting will begin at 11h30 on Wednesday, 29 March. R65 per person.
Phone 021 887 4608 or email hotel@oudewerfhotel.co.za to book your table.

See you at the tasting!
