I went there for a work function, the hospitality, friendliness and assistance was amazing. The most beautiful dessert wines and Chardony I have ever tasted. With African drums in the background and tasting stations everywhere, it is an experience I will always remember!

Taking the picnic option at Buitenverwachting was a very pleasant surprise and experience. A lovely picnic lunch was served under the oak trees. It allowed the kids to run about and the adults enjoyed a bottle of wine or two. This was complimented by very friendly and efficient service. A truely lunch experience if young kids.

Just a fabulous way to spend an afternoon, seated under a tree with a hamper full of homemade goodies, bottle of chilled wine and warm sunshine. What more could one wish for. The fire was burning on the hill with helicopters and firemen trying to put it out, but detract from the glorious afternoon, the staff were wonderfully attentive and... More

Buitenverwachting is a wine estate in Constantia with many reasons to visit. The man restaurant is clearly highly rated but this is also a delightful place to go and have a coffee or a glass of wine. The setting and ambiance are excellent. However for those not wanting a meal, the estate provides picnic lunches which are eaten on tables... More

Buitenverwachting does not only have fantastic wines, but the grounds are really worth a visit. Unfortunately the weather was not good for a picnic so we have to come back for that. Nevertheless we had a really delightful wine tasting with our host Jannick.

I enjoyed the tasting but envious of friends who attended the event and told me how wonderful it was. Famous for he picnic lunches served under... More

We really enjoy picnics in the wineries and came across Buitenverwachting. The wine estate itself is very attractive and picnics take place under the large oak trees around the lawn - a magical, peaceful setting with the chickens occasionally strutting across the lawn. The picnic is well put together and the quantity is just right for two and it is... More

We decided spur of the moment to visit this winery, not to sample the plonk as much as to enjoy the picnic we had heard the winery had on offer...we were fortunate that having called around 8am the very pleasant lady was able to help us out(sorry, can't remember your name..) Beautiful setting under very old Oak trees, pleasant staff,... More
