Cheese & Jams

Our favorite treats & Fairview has one of the best cheeses. We didn't get time to enjoy the restaurant - so can't review this. The goats are really cute.

My husband and I have visited Fairview twice and loved it each time. The cheese is fantastic and the wine and cheese pairing was great! We always have fun trying their new wines and food products. We still haven't made it to the Goat Shed (really got to try going for lunch one of these days). Hopefully this upcoming trip... More

When going on the Cape Wine route, I always end up at Fairview. The estate is located in a very picturesque area. The restaurant is great as one is able to order a cheese platter with cheeses made on the estate. The wine tasting is very enjoyable as one can pair cheese with wine. The blue cheese and sweet red...

I have been here too many times to count! Always a winner! If you are on your wine tasting route, this is the place to stop. Buy the wine and cheese tasting for R35 and be hosted by one of the very friendly ladies with the wine tasting. Then go around the deli and taste cheese to your hears desire!... More

I've taken friends there twice this month and enjoyed both visits which included cheese and wine tasting as well as lunch at the Goatshed. Wine to suit all tastes and not over priced. I was lucky enough to catch the end of a sale of some of the wines and came away with a couple of boxes of good every... More

We visited this tasting room as the 1st stop on the Unpretentious Sommelier tour, sampling 8 wines, including 2 very nice dessert selections. Hint: Don't miss the red dessert wine made with brandy. Significant discounts were offered for volume purchases, international shipping is available and VAT is refunded on site for international travelers. The tasting room is elegant and nicely... More

I have never been much of a wine person but I went with a group of friends mostly for the cheese to be honest. I loved every single one of the cheeses they were amazing. However I said I would also try some of the wines with everyone else. We chose the standard tasting with was R25 for six different... More
