Buitenverwachting

Beyond Expectations! Originally a part of the Constantia Estate, founded by the first Governor of the Cape Colony, Simon van der Stel, this beautiful vineyard on the western slopes (East Facing) of the Constantiaberg has a long history of wine producing in South Africa. First sold as a farm in 1773, the farm was cultivated with 90000 grape vines in 1825 by Ryk Arnoldus Cloete. The farm has been restored to its former glory and a recent recultivation yielded a harvest of 100 tonnes - and after a period of 30 years without harvest, this was definitely Beyond Expectations!

Apart from its geographical position, and historical significance in the Cape, Buitenverwachting is still a very real part of everyday life in the Cape. With its gorgeous gardens and green lawns scattered with ancient trees, many visitors book the pre-packed picnics and just enjoy the time, lying in the midst of one of the oldest vineyards in South Africa. (For more information regarding the picnics, contact Buitenverwachting)

The Buitenverwachting Restaurant has also been classed as one of Cape Towns finest restaurants. With its breathtaking views of the vineyard, uncompromisingly high quality of service, and exquisite menus, it is not difficult to see why it was on Cape Towns top 10 list. Although Closed on Mondays, the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day, with A la carte and set menus to satisfy not only your physical appetite but also that appetite for a touch of class!
