On business in Cape Town, took a break & made a run to Fairview, which came highly recommended by friends, for lunch and a tour before flying back to Joburg. Ended up buying several bottles of excellent and inexpensive wine and an assortment of cheeses after a wine and cheese tasting/lunch. The drive from Cape Town was beautiful as is... More

Paid a return visit to Fairview Restaurant Outside tables situated under the vines and the best chicken pies in the country! A good selection of reasonably priced wines by the glass. The deserts are a must despite trying to redist the temptation A walk among the rose bushes helps the conscience with the thought of the meal just consumed! Always... More

This was our first stop on a day-trip to the Winelands, and what a great start it was! Their staff are so friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. We tasted a good few wines which we thoroughly enjoyed, followed by cheese tasting in their impressive store. We walked away with stacks of delicious cheeses and wines :D And we'll definitely be back... More

Highly recommended if you tasting for the first time or even... More

Sadly we arrived just half an hour or so before the cheese and wine tasting area closed for the day but we did manage to try quite a few cheeses plus three wines each, and enjoyed the cheese so much that we purchased some [plus bread and olives] in the deli for our supper. The goat tower is amusing and... More

Fairview wine farm has gone down in the wine tasting steaks. It was one of our most memorable visits back in 2011, however now in 2015 it has lost its edge and was a very poor experience. We paid for the cheese and wine tasting which was for 6 different wines - the wine assistant had no customer service skills... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my recent visit to Fairview Wine Estate near Paarl, where I tasted a range of their lovely cheeses. They offer wine tasting, have a well stocked deli and restaurant, and the "Goat Tower" is always a hit with both young and old! Definitely worth a visit.
