De Toren’s wine crafting roadmap is clear and precise. In addition to our philosophy of “Extreme Care” and producing perfectly balanced wines of only the highest quality, our number one objective will always remain the enjoyment of our wines by our valued clients. Our true north.
“Extreme Care” is at the core of everything we do here at De Toren; from the consideration spent on our vines to the tissue paper wrapped around each bottle of De Toren wine. This quest for perfection will never waiver or change. Hence, putting all awards aside for a moment, we thought it well to celebrate our estate’s wine journey and tasting experience by sharing the thoughts of our esteemed clients and visitors in this article, as published on TripAdvisor.
It was a privilege to see how they produce their great wines
We were told about this winery by friends in Joburg. The wine was hard to source so we decided to ring and arrange a private tour. What a delight to go there and see the love and extreme care that went into every bottle. Also, to appreciate and understand the technical expertise which was behind the growing, production and bottling of these superb wines. It goes without saying that the “tasting” was something special.

The best wine tour I have ever been on and I have done many in many countries. The tour complements the excellent and very exclusive products they produce.

Amazing vineyard, amazing tour!
It was 2 years ago on my 40th but remains the best vineyard experience that I have had. A personal touch delivered by the winemaking team, with a superb tasting session at the end, cannot wait to go back again. Highly recommended as part of your next trip to the Western Cape area!

What a fantastic tasting, book ahead
We booked in advance and arrived slightly early, but had a wonderful welcome. The entire team we met were very friendly. The tasting is both personal and informative. We tried 3 of their wines in the private cellar and Else-Marie was a superb host. Definitely worth a visit when you’re in Stellenbosch area.

Must visit vineyard on Stellenbosch
Top notch service. The tour was informative and they allowed to taste our wine at a leisurely place. The grounds were beautiful. Icing on the cake was when the rear bumper in our car got a bit damaged in a bit of careless reversing on our part and the guys from the vineyard instantly gathered round to help us put it right again. We were so grateful! Thanks, De Toren!
