I visited this wine tasting farm with friends in January. It has a variety of cheeses and wines. The wine tasting experience was unique and most enjoyable. The various cheeses were worth a try. I highly recommend you visit this winery.

What a great day out! The cheese was amazing and so where the wines. Really good quality as such a " budget friendly" price. We went as a group of ladies and we had a great time. There is a great restaurant as well..... Wonderful place.

We visited the lovely Fairview Winery with our Cape Town based guide, Mr. Terry Bingley. The winery offers an impressive line up of wines. We highly recommend the tour and wine tasting experience. The staff is highly professional and knowledgeable and the win paring is outstanding! We were lucky to have found this place at the suggestion of Mr. Bingley.... More

Stopped for the amazing cheeses, but had lamb curry instead. Yummmy!! It was tasty with basmati rice. A big plate of food, good value for money! Cheese platters were delicious too. Kids had macaroni & cheese & they loved it. Book in advance, as people were queuing outside of the restaurant. A must buy is the variety of fresh cheeses,... More

It has been a few years since our return to this well known winery. This time it felt very commercial like a conveyor belt for wine and cheese tasting. It's a far cry from the charm when we first visited. We understand this is based on public demand but it just doesn't work for us and I'm sure some of... More

We drove out to Fairview to try out their cheeses. It did not disappoint at all. I am usually weary of trying something new, but absolutely loved the cheeses. You get served the cheese platter with some nice breads and farm butter. You can have a nice bottle of wine with the tasting or just a glass.

We'd driven up to Paarl from Cape Town with the sole intention of having lunch - previously well advertised by our host and friend (a Brit with a house on the Cape) - and to have a mooch around the winery. The whole Fairview operation is slick and professional. There's plenty of car parking under shady trees (essential during the... More

We sat down to 10 varieties of cheese & worked our way through each wine pairing over a period of an hour. The experience was out of this world & we never thought that all 10 cuisine mouthfuls could be as good as they were. A must for any overseas visitor - even a Swiss!

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
