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.

The best of the 3 vineyards that we visited (too much wine by the end to do more). Though not quite so grand as Grande Provence, it has some lovely gardens and the goat tower (see pics)... hence their Goats do Roam wine. We thought that the place seemed much more 'cosy' and welcoming than the other ones we visited,... More

Although a local, its one of my favourite places. Cheese and wine tasting for a minimal fee. Wine as well of a huge selection of cheese, breads and preserves to purchase. If you have kids, this is perfect for them to see goats in the goat shed. Not sure if you are allowed to feed them. Restaurant on the premises... More

Whenever friends or family come visit Cape Town, we ALWAYS go to Fairview. A good selection of cheeses as well as wines, combined with the scenic views makes this a 'must see' out of the wine farms in the Stellenbosch/Paarl area.

We were very curious about their wine and cheese pairing as well as the quality of their wines. We did a tasting in their master tasting room having the opportunity to taste all of their best wines paired with different cheeses. It was amazing! The people are very knowledgeable about both the cheeses and wine. Every bit of the experience... More

Having enjoyed the so called master class tasting and cheese pairing last year I returned with a friend to taste one more time......I wish I had not. By comparison it turned out to be a rushed uninformative presentation..... The sommelier was clearly well educated in the products before us but failed to leave the bottles for examination the labels for... More

Had breakfast at the Goatshed restaurant which was very nice. Limited menu though. Then did a wine and cheese tasting.. 6 wines and 6 cheese options for R25. Nice experience for a newby like me. But would have liked the person serving the wine to explain more in detail what the different wines were as this was new to me.

What a stunning day out. The tasting of 6 wines and a huge selection of cheese has got to be the best value we have ever experienced, in the most stunning surroundings. The tasting rooms and shop are first rate and top calibre and the staff are absolutely de,ight full, friendly and courteous. The chocolate has got to be best... More

A great winery to learn about wine and cheese and how they match each other. It is busy but if you take the master tasting offering 8 wines, 8 different types of cheese that match the wines plus local olive oil and fabulous bread, you'll not be disappointed.
