Buitenverwachting, Constantia

#8 of 33 in Wineries in Cape Town
Taste a selection of wines in the classy restaurant at Buitenverwachting, a family-run heritage wine farm in Constantia. Part of the original Constantia Estate established in 1796 by the governor of the new Dutch colony, the farm was built on the eastern slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg. Enjoy views of camellias and rows of vines set against the background of granite hills. Granite soil and cool gentle breezes provide distinct aromatic profiles, enhancing the flavor of the wines produced here. A state-of-the art cellar can house up to 3,000 small oak barrels, and the estate regularly hosts events with live music performances.

  • For the family with young kids (or even just a quiet time under the trees) this place is ideal. Buy a cheeseboard and a bottle of wine (or a G&T) and chill out at this lovely spot in Constantia.  more »

  • Such a lovely well maintained and well run farm. You have to compliment all and sundry involved in management of such a landmark site. To my knowledge the farm is privately owned and been in the family for many generations. Apart from spectacular wines and champagnes, you can treat yourself to a lovely cheese board to accompany the the wine tasting. The property is adorned with old Cape Dutch buildings. They make stunning photos for memories of your visit. The restaurant staff are highly competent, and the food is world class. The shop also offers lovely treats ranging from biscuits to chocolates and so much more. Lovely hand made jewelry is also sold, lovingly made by the wife of the owner I believe. Talented lot. Picnics on the lawn make for a relaxing afternoon and you can laze about under the trees knowing the environment and your vehicle are safe. Lovely experience and highly recommended.
  • Beautiful location with a lovely garden where you can enjoy a picnic or go to the restaurant. We enjoyed a wine tasting with some bites overlooking the garden which we can only recommend. Justin our wine expert only helped making the experience fantastic!
