You drive and drive through the wine farm to get to the tasting venue and scenery is spectacular. I took an Uber there, and on the way back I walked all the way to the entrance to take it all in. Sprawling acres of trees, vineyard, rolling hills and a horse paddock. The wines are mostly above average and the... More

I cannot speak highly enough of Buitenverwachting. The main restaurant is world class and the food is exceptionally good. The wines are simply stunning and I wish we could get them more easily here in the UK. I am a huge fan of their Sauvignon Blanc which when chilled is the crispest, yummiest Sauvignon Blanc I have ever tasted. Their... More

this wine farm disappointed: the wines are average and not as sophisticated and smooth as one would like. the wine guide was simply doing it AS HER JOB and not a passion. no particular ambience, lovely setting though...

With 5 friends, I experienced my first picnic lunch today - and what a delightful one it turned out to be. From the time Adrienne took my booking to sitting down under the oaks and Norfolk pines on manicured lawns and being waited on my smiling women determined that we were going to have a good time - and we...

went at 5 when they were shutting down the coffee shop and wine tasting which is in a courtyard that doesn't look as nice as some other wine tasting places. The coffee shop looks over a beautiful lawn between historic farm buildings with magnificent trees so full marks for that location. Waited around till 630 pm when dinner was served... More

The picnic basket contained many lovely goodies, brought to you whilst you sit in the pretty garden. Had a lovely bottle of white, and there's a coffee shop on site too. Far less touristy and therefore nicer than the nearby Groot Constantia.

This was a highlight of our 3-week South African Expedition. How thoughtful to include a coffee shop at the winery for those less wine-inclined? We loved the picnic, where for R150/pp we dined like kings in a courtyard underneath the shade of a giant (perhaps) pine tree. The fully stocked picnic basket included an addicting Peppadew dip, fresh baguette, fresh... More
