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.

We chose a Public Holiday to visit this attraction. The cheese and wine tasting was a bit of a supermarket and compared to other farms like Delheim, it falls short. You pay your fee, find an empty spot around a counter and choose six wines to waste. The cheese taste involves another counter around the corner, and once more you... More

we did the wine and cheese pairing. For only 60 ZAR you get 8 wines and cheeses to taste in a private room with a lots of atmosphere and personal attention. Here you taste Fairviews best wines and cheeses and olive oil! Well run, friendly and good wines. We liked the Lands End Shiraz and the 2014 Rausanne a new... More

Fairview and its proprietors are pioneers. THIS is where the wine tasting experience was started and in my opinion, perfected. Forget about the fact that there are hordes of visitors and tourists; Fairview can handle the pressure and service is never compromised. We continue to take overseas and local visitors here for professional wine tasting of some of the best... More

My husband and I made this one of our stops on our tour of Stellenbosch. We loved the wine and cheese tasting and had an equally delightful meal at the restaurant. For what amounts to about $2 in U.S. currency you get to try 6 wines and as many cheese cubes as you can handle. I recommend asking the staff... More

This winery is laid back, and run very well. The selection is terrific, with a taste for every palate. You get to wander around and try different, breads, cheeses, and jams, whilst sipping away on delectable glass of wine.. They're great about describing each wine, and pointing you in the right direction, to suit your taste..... A must do for... More

I was lucky enough to do a bit of winery touring while in South Africa for a business trip. Fairview was an excellent stop as the wine and cheese tasting was really a treat. The wines are quite good and I really enjoyed the local Pinotage at this winery and others. If you have a chance, check out Fairview Wines.... More

We have really enjoyed the cheese and wine pairing. It is only R60 per person and it is done in a separate room (quite) with a well informed tutor. They have a very good choice of wines and the selection of cheeses was a perfect match. I bought some cheese in the shop and am still enjoying them. I would... More
