I am passionate about wine, so I may be a little bit bias. The wine is average, which is a bad thing in SA, wines are mostly made from Spanish cultivars of grapes,and they are nothing special. The place is too commercialized and to top it up, the staff has no knowledge of wines and interacts with you on a... More

Fairview is one of those beautiful gems in Paarl which I will continue to visit time after time after time. From the moment you park you car it is an experience. As you walk towards the entrance you are greeted by their goats with their different personalities! The wine and cheese tasting is to-die-for! I constantly find myself walking around... More

We did the wine and cheese tasting at Fairview. Great cheeses to buy at the deli and good wine. Very nice setting for lunch or breakfast and for the whole family.

Not our first visit to Fairview but we were disappointed this time round: you had to book Wine and Cheese tasting and could not choose your cheese - they were paired with the wine. But out of 6 cheeses I don't eat 3 of them.. in the past one was able to choose 6 wines from a pre-defined list -now... More

I love this venue and they usually have great food and the service is normally outstanding. However my last visit here was lacking in all the above. The Mediterranean meatballs & polenta cakes at the goatshed restaurant were average. Hopefully this place will improve and be back to its former great self...

This was our second winery of the day, as part of a Winelands tour. The first place (Boschendal, in Franschhoek) had been amazing, so we were eager to see what Fairview had to offer. We were booked on the 'Classic tasting', which cost 40 rand for 6 wines matched with 6 cheeses. There were 10 of us in the group,... More

Fairview offer a great opportunity to enjoy outstanding wines with a dedicated person that combine your wines with cheese platter from cheese they produce on the farm. This makes for an outstanding tasting experience. The wines are great and very affordable.

Went to Fairview on a very rare family outing yesterday. As usual great atmosphere, cheese and wine. Must admit though was abit disapointed that now we cant go get our own cheese - we recieved a tiny piece per wine. Our favourite part was that we could enjoy the cheese displayed. Been there so many times and will continue to... More

We went during the week and it wasn't crowded at all - the service was great. Their cheese is absolutely phenomenon all and I've been coming back ever since. Try get there early to get your hands on a Ciabatta too. Would recommend the Viognier.

Myself and a friend was at Fairview on Friday 23/09/2016. We started our adventure at the Goatshed, where we had the amazing Chicken Pie..... Really exquisite. We then ventured onto the Master wine tasting. Annamarie was our host and I would really like to commend her on the wonderful experience we had. She was very professional, had a very good... More
