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. The staff we came across were so friendly, as indeed was Charlie the dog. The coffee was beautifully presented in a ceramic handless... More

Had a fantastic cheese platter and full wine tasting here. At R70 a pop it's not cheap but the quality of wine is truly exceptional. The Somms were interesting and knowledgable. The cheese platter was Fantastic. Well worth visiting.

I came here for my birthday and we did a huge wine tasting and chocolate pairing. The place accommodated a large group and had prepared our own tasting room where we had our own lecturer type host. He was knowledgeable and brilliant in his showing of the tasting. He explained everything articulately and the whole day was brilliant. Thank you!

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...
