We where on our way back home and stopped at Buitenverwachting. As we didn't want to buy wine or to take lunch, we took a glass of wine at the Coffee Bloc. The nice server suggested a cheese platter .. that was very delicous! The calme area under the trees and the animals made us to forget the time.

Had been twice already at this beautiful winery. It is surrounded by a wonderful landscape and offers their wines and other delicious things in their cafe or the restaurant. It is uniquely restaurated and different to the other wineries around. Just give it a try, it is really special!

Having enquired about the format of the wine tasting we were harangued by an ascetic looking organiser who said that we shouldn't do it if we were driving unless we spat all the wine out and how he thought that people who drank any alcohol at all and drove were utterly reprehensible. Maybe he was on his way out of... More

A mate and I went to Buitenverwachting for an afternoon of wine tasting. He had passed this place many times and always wanted to visit....so off we went. Located in stunning grounds in the hills around Constantia we arrived on a blistering hot afternoon. It's R50 a head to have a tasting and that gives you a choice of 5... More

My wife and I were determined to come to Buitenverwachting to taste the wines as the Sauvignon Blanc from the estate is our regular go-to wine in our local restaurant in England. We were extremely lucky that our restaurant owner and the agent were able to organise a tasting with Lars Maack himself. This was both a thrill and extremely... More

Beautiful setting, friendly staff. Lovely place for a meal in the restaurant or coffee outside. Good wine can be purchased and you can take a picnic blanket to sit under a 170 year old tree. Kids have lots of space to run around and you can watch the chickens and squirrels entertain you.

I attended the Constanta Fresh 2017 and Wow, what a place. The grounds are stunning, the wine fantastic and the people wonderful. Add it to your list if visiting this area and take home some lovely wine...

This was one of the nicest wine farms I have visited in the western cape. We went on a Saturday afternoon with eleven adults and nine kids. The adults sat on the large lawn whilst the children ran around playing football or just generally doing kid things. Despite the fact that we were told they would stop serving wine at... More

On the spur of the moment we decided to visit this wine farm, and it was a good decision. For R50 you get to taste five wines of your choice. We got it a bit wrong .... I should have taken five whites and my husband five reds then we would have gone across the spectrum. The cheese and pate... More

This was mine and my husbands 1st visit to Buitenverwaching. It will not be our last. Initially we had gone to buy some wine as a birthday gift but before doing so decided to have a coffee.
