This was my second time at Fairview and yet again, it was spectacular! The setting is perfect in my opinion and the wine is out of this world! We again decided to go with the Master tasting (only 60 ZAR or $6USD) which includes 8 wine paring with 8 cheese. The whole thing is done in their dinning room looking... More

Fairview farm is beautifully situated. It is somewhat off the main route but worth the trip! We went on a misty, slightly rainy day and yet we had a delicious brunch. The food is a little expensive, but worth every cent. The cheese platter is a must! All items on the menu are delicious and filling. The shop and wine... More

Although we enjoy drinking wine, my husband and I rarely do the wine tasting thing, but being in such a gorgeous wine district on our travels, we decided to try just one winery. The advice from our accommodation was to try Fairview. Our hostess was very attentive and certainly knew her stuff. She recommended a variety wines unique to the... More

We had a wine tasting tour and our first stop was here. It was great!!! The outdoors are very beautiful, they goats are lovely and the ambience in general is very peaceful and nice. We had the wine and cheese tasting, and it was awesome. The selection was very good, their wines are really good quality. We had a very... More

Visited Fairview with a couple of friends for a Saturday morning girls day out. Must say we were pleasantly surprised by the great service, wines and of coarse the cheese and wine tasting-a first for me! Will be back for sure!

Fairview is slightly tucked away in the "back roads" between the popular Stellenbosch & Wellington/Paarl regions, but it is definitely worth the detour! They have a beautiful setting, with the iconic 'Goats tower' welcoming you to the estate. It's a great place for friends and families with children to enjoy, with a good restaurant also available on-site. Visitors can choose... More

We were recommended the Master Cheese and Wine Tasting by our guide and we are SO glad we did it (even if it was 10am!!). The 8 cheeses and wines were all delightful and the whole experience was just great - beautiful surroundings, wonderful service and generally a very interesting tasting, a bargain at 60ZAR. Highly recommend.

Fairview Wine Estate, Paarl, South Africa About 45 minutes or so drive along the N1 from Cape Town takes you into the Paarl Wine Route – “the Gateway to Cape Wine Culture”. One visit that we would recommend is a trip around the Fairview Estate. Best of all is the very well organised and continually running ‘wine tasting’. Fairview was... More

I visited Fairview last more than 10 years ago. I really enjoyed returning. The setting is beautiful and the wine and cheese combination tasting is great - I bought a few excellent wines and some of the best Camembert ever. My wife (the designated driver) and 11 year old son enjoyed the cheese tasting. I will definitely go back next... More
