A master tasting with Deirdre is a can't miss experience. She is born and raised in Franschhoek. She is simply the most knowledgeable and articulate representative of Fairview. An unforgettable and impeccable experience.

My husband and I had the pleasure to visit Fairview wine and cheese farm on our recent visit to the Western Cape. It was a real treat to see the goats roaming in the Goat tower.

We had lunch at the Goatshed restaurant which was exquisite (see my separate review of The Goatshed).

We went to the tasting room to order a few cases of wine (to be couriered home). The friendly female host that assisted us with our purchase presented us with a taster glass of the Goats do Roam white wine which we immediately added to our order. We also bought 2 bottles of Fairview’s The Grenaches Grenache Blanc 2020 which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The Deli was well stocked and boasts a wide variety of products. We bought grape jam which was delicious.

The gardens are immaculate and and we were thrilled to see a squirrel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Fairview wine estate.

The goats shed bistro is awesome - the cheese delicious and the duck pate to die for over looking the goats and watching the squirrels what a treat

We were hosted today by Zaheda at the wine tasting. Zaheda went out of her way to make sure that we tasted all the wines we wanted to, never complained when we asked too many.questions, qnd made sure we were happy at all times. Our wine tasting experience at Fairview was amazing today and the shout out goes to Zaheda!! She is one amazing employee, brand ambassador and person !

First time back here in a while. Arrangement has changed to be more covid compliant. Great selection of wines and accompanying cheesees. Great value and an enjoyable 90min!

The Fairview Wine Estate is known for their good wines and cheeses, and if you truly want to experience the best they have to offer then I recommend you do the Master Tasting. Their traditional tasting is done in a large room at tasting islands (also a nice option), but the Master Tasting is done in a separate room where you sit at beautiful wooden tables and have a view of parts of one of their cellars. The tasting consisted of wines paired with cheeses or meats, and they had bread with olive oil also available to cleanse your palette. The nice thing about the tasting was that you get exposed to wine cultivars which aren't really that well known in South Africa which is great for those looking for something different. You are also able to buy all their wines, cheese, meats and various other items at their shop, and they also have a very nice restaurant on the estate. The estate itself is very beautiful with the highlight being the goat tower where you can see some of the farm's goats, which is always especially nice for the children to see. The range of wines (from easy drinking and affordable to specialized and premium) along with the beauty of the farm is a testament to why they are so popular, and I will definitely be back soon.

Grounds is so neat and well maintained. Children loved the few goats at the entrance. Very affordable wine and cheese tasting.. R60 for 6 wines and cheeses. They catered for the kids. Tasting plate with sweet cheeses and chocolate brownie and lemonade. Tasting guides were all amazing and could give lots of back ground. Thank you Tammy for sharing all the info. Ended day at Goatshed restaurant with lovely pizzas and chicken pie.

Well coached wine tasting guides take you through the different wines (and cheese) tasting.
Groups are managed to ensure covid protocols and to ensure fair time spend by guide with each group/couple.
The tasting, shop and gardens, a must for a Paarl visitor

We had a great time at Fairview, it’s a beautiful place with some fantastic wines and cheeses. What made it even better was Derick, just a super guy who we had a great time learning about wines in a very chilled style. We will be back !
