Parker Cottage Guesthouse - Buitenverwachting


09h00 Leave Parker by turning left onto Buitengracht.

09h02 Keep going until you get to the first set of traffic lights with Buitensingel (you’ll see the RV centre on your right) and turn RIGHT following M3 Muizenberg.

09h05 Keep going straight on along this road without turning off it. It will expand into a four lane and then a two lane highway going off around the mountain. Look up to your right for Devil’s Peak and to your left for the harbour and docks. You’ll stay on this road for about 30 minutes now.

On your way down to the False Bay coast, you’ll go through what are called the Southern Suburbs, which are really just that with one exception, Constantia.

09h20 Take the turning for Ladies Mile, which you’ll come to just after the Kendal Road turning. Turn off the M3 and turn LEFT on the Ladies Mile road, taking you back under the M3. Turn RIGHT when you reach the M42 and follow signs for Tokai. Take the second right into Klein Constantia Road, at which point you’ll see a sign for Buitenverwachting. Follow this road and signs all the way until the end of the road, where you’ll find Buitenverwachting estate.

Whilst certainly not the grandest, the oldest or the most prolific of wine estates, there’s something about the serenity and the total lack of pomposity that seems to accompany wine these days that sets Buitenverwachting apart. We took our staff here for our Christmas function last year and it was a total hit for young and old alike. There’s a rich history of family ownership to the place which is palpable when you set foot in it: it actually feels like a farm! You’ll be a little too early on this tour for lunch but if you are a little tardy, why not stop for one of their picnics on the lawn, play with the dog and contemplate your surroundings under the monkey puzzle tree. Super.
