The Toeka story reveals a unique and undiscovered gem in the Winelands for all who loves antiques, vintage items and beautiful things from yesteryear. It is a result of the owners, Johan and Gesie van Deventer’s passion in collecting and preserving the beautiful things of yesteryear, and to share it with everyone in a very impressive display.
