Fairview is a favourite when it comes to treating friends and family that aren't from Cape Town. The cheese and wine pairing with the winemakers is a must do! The cheese and meat platter at the restaurant is amazing as well.

We keep revisiting Fairview. The cheese & wine tasting is most enjoyable. Staff is friendly and knowledgable. Love the deli products.

It was a lovely drive to Paarl through the beautiful countryside to visit the Fairview Estate, sampling wine and cheese, as well as lunch at the Goatshed Restaurant. It is well planned with different little "houses" for cheese and wine sampling, especially the pinotage wines, as we do not grow the red wine grapes in Australia which make this signature... More

excellent Mother's Day visit... Master Class wine tasting followed by lunch at The Goatshed Restaurant! only downside - i initial wine expert, decided to disappear after the 5th wine pairing! nevertheless, a colleague of hers came to the rescue and salvaged that part of the afternoon. lunch = total value for money = generous servings and delicious!

This winery offers a tour as well as cheese with your 6 wine choices. Very friendly but caters to large groups. Offers a variety of choices.

For a minimum amount you can taste six types of wine and some different types of cheeses. People are very helpful and love to share information about the wines and cheeses. There is also a shop to buy some wine and cheese to take home with you.

Popped in for a cheese and wine tasting and shopping for picnic nibbles. The wine tasting was great, bought some good quality wines and the cheese tasting was delectable. Bought a number of fantastic goods, I don't believe that you should be charged for wine tasting if you purchase wines; that's the only negative point I have.

Having not been to Fairview for a good 15 years, I had totally forgotten how charming this wine estate is. Our intention was more for the cheeses as the three of us are not much for wine. In saying that we participated with the wine tasting and cheese tasting combo, and it was really fun and inexpensive. Loved the Cheeses... More

Top class service and delicious food. A good variety on the menu and portion sizes substantial. They have an excellent selection on the kiddie menu too and the goats are a great attraction for the little people.
