I had a nice lunch at Fairview Wines but the best part by far was the wine tasting. For about $5 US each my friends and I selected the master's wine taste with cheese. What a wonderful experience. Four delicious white wines and four nice red wines. Prior to this experience I was a bit of a red winist (very... More

The wine tasting session was a delight. Had great wines with a story being told behind eah wine. The dessert wine was the best for me. In one tasting session (as far as I can remember) you get 6 wines to try out. On the sixth wine they urge you to try it out with the cheese and dips that... More

The wine tasting comparing with the goat cheese is brilliant! The venue is beautiful with light fittings in the form of wine leaves! You never leave without buying products, stunning winner wines and smooth tasty cheeses! Definitely a stop to add on your itinerary!

We visited the wine tasting room as part of a tour and were able to sample our choice six wines from a printed bar menu [Standard tasting]. We were not disappointed except to learn that most if not all are not available in our home province of Ontario Canada. We were therefore obliged to buy a bottle of pinotage to... More

As always a fine winery, artisan foods, a major tourist attraction, goats and a good restaurant. Haven't been there for over a year and always leave with wines, breads, cheeses , this after a good lunch. It's popular with overseas visitors as well as locals and there is plenty of parking and all facilities good. Every time I say to... More

We visited Fairview on a Friday afternoon. What a great place. We did the master Tasting and even without a formal booking they accommodated us. 8 cheeses paired with 8 wines, what a treat. Liaan, the Sommelier were fantastic. Even being the only guy working the room we never waited to long for our next wine. I can recommend this... More

We chose Fairview for a family lunch. Booking is always essential as the restaurant and estate are always super busy. I liked the pro-active manner that Fairview uses to confirm a booking made. They send an sms to your cell after a reservation is made or any changes are done. On the morning they also sent a sms prompt to... More

Delightful place both to eat in and take away. The wine is way under rated. Should rank with the best of them. They make a first rate olive oil at around ZAR 60 for a whole litre. Great bread and goat's milk cheeses for a picnic in the wine lands. I have gone there at least once a year for... More

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
