Buitenverwachting meaning “Beyond Expectations”
Buitenverwachting forms part of the original Constantia Estate, which was founded by Governor Simon van der Stel. First sold as a 200 morgen sub – division Buitenverwachting changed hands all too often and was finally purchased by the Mueller family in 1980. Imbued with a sense of history, they retraced the roots of Buitenverwachting, restored the historic buildings and established over 30 homes for all staff members working on the 150 hectare estate.
Rooted in deep, decomposing granite soils and cooled by temperate sea breezes from the nearby oceans, Buitenverwachting’ s vines produce internationally acclaimed wines of great complexity with unique aromatic profiles.
