Tokar Estate

Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia

Tokar Estate is a family founded and operated winery and vineyard. It has a Yarra Valley dress circle location in Gruyere, on Maddens Lane, between Oakridge, Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills. Tokar Estate has had immense success on the wine show circuit and has been rated 5 Red stars for three consecutive years by James Halliday. Under the guidance of Vigneron Daniel Tokar and Winemaker Martin Siebert, Tokar Estate has undergone major transformational change since 2012 including; the implementation of sustainable vineyard practices, the finessing of wine style and an overhaul of our brand imagery. This has enabled a shift and broadening of sales from almost exclusively Cellar door and members to include the key on premise and retail markets of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Winemaker, Martin Siebert joined the Tokar Estate team in 2012 bringing with him a wealth of winemaking experience and a passion for creating quality wines. Martin claims it was the time spent working in New Zealand and France (Burgundy) that has had the biggest impact on his winemaking approach. Martin spends much of his time in the vineyard to ensure the fruit is of the highest quality, then once the fruit is picked and in the winery, the wine almost makes itself. “Burgundy in particular taught me a huge amount about the importance of the vineyard site and how the wines should speak of where they were grown. Great wines can only be made from great sites so I was delighted to jump on board with Tokar Estate, as I knew the site was bursting with potential. Martin has previously completed vintages at; Benjamin Leroux (Burgundy, France), Pegasus Bay (Canterbury, N.Z.), Yarra Yering (Yarra Valley), Coldstream Hills (Yarra Valley), Granite Hills (Macedon Ranges), Carlei Estate (Port Phillip)
