go there for the cheese and wine tasting (more for the cheese than the wine actually) as well as for some yummi shoping at the deli (cheese, jams, olive oil, vinegar, bread, etc...). I did not try the restaurant so cannot comment. probably not the best place to go for wine but their selection is impressive and their tasting staff... More

Wow is all i can say. Our Sommelier was so good and he really impressed my husband with the tales of the different wines and... More

My wife and I went to Fairview on a recommendation from a friend in MA. Having only been to vineyards in CA, I must admit that Fairview exceeded my expectations. Go for the master tasting. You'll get an education and a cheese pairing. We liked it enough to send a couple of cases of Wine home and go to their... More

No trip to Cape Town is complete without visiting a wine estate, and we did just that. What started out as a wine and cheese tasting trip, turned into a full on lunch accompanied by a bottle of wine - which was actually our breakfast - followed by the wine and cheese tasting - yes it really is that good...

Great selection of wine and cheese and fantastic experience thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable wine masters. We got a lady named Carmen and she was SO good and nice to us. We ended up ordering cases of the wine since we just had to take back the delicious viogniers and sweet reds. The cheese selection is wonderful and they... More

Went there for a business branch lunch. Restaurant had great food. Everyone enjoyed the wine options and even popped in for the cheese tasting afterwards. Not many wine tasting options tho.

Drove out here on our last full day in Cape Town after watching a show in the states called "Three Sheets". The host, Zane Lamprey, visited here on his show about Cape Town. Beautiful drive out to wine country, and cute, extremely inexpensive little winery and cheese shop. Think it was 24R (like $3 USD!) for multiple wine and cheese... More
