Buitenverwachting - "Beyond Expectation" - originally formed part of the Constantia Estate, founded by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the new Dutch colony at the tip of Africa.
The farm was lovingly restored to its former glory while extensive planting of the most selected of cultivars was initiated.
