It is very easy to do a number of wineries in the Constantia area in a day trip from Cape Town. Our first stop was this winery. Very hard to pronounce correctly. The setting is very beautiful with old Dutch buildings with thatch roofs. The pourings were very generous. Butien blanc and Christen Red are favorites. We were the only... More

This is for me the top Winery to visit in the Constantia area. Why? well... its smallish size make it way less attractive to large groups and the road to it would not be bus friendly, therefore the tasting area is intimate and the adjoining coffee / snack bar area serves delicious meals at such reasonable prices plus the service...

Fantastic afternoon with friends, celebrating new child but fully catered outdoor picnic. Magnificent setting, wonderful food and wine, including Buitenverwachting Chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and Steenberg Rose Brut Methode Cap Classique. A perfect venue for a unique experience to spoil important friends and guests at

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
