This is a great place to visit on a day out from Cape Town. There is a good winery with wine and cheese tasting and sales. The grounds are lovely and the goat tower with the two very photogenic goats is worth seeing

Our guide, Allan Theron from Western Cape Tours picked us up in Cape Town and whisked us away to Wine Country......After chatting with him about how wonderful the Goats do Roam wine was that we tried in USA, he was determined we should head there to the Fairview Estates Winery first for their master wine tasting ...so at 9:30 am we were happily visiting with the goats, tasting nine wines, nine cheeses and three types of their olive oil that they served with fresh baked bread. Yummmm but also not the typical way one starts the day, slightly sloshed on fine wines..... but then again it's vacation time!

We found the wines to be very good, but the wine tasting event was the highlight- you learn so much about the actual wine making and the staff are willing to answer any questions.

After enjoying our special tasting, we roamed around the beautiful grounds, and their shop. We laughed at the humorous wall decorations and wish they sold the T-shirts to tourists, we would have bought many!

Do not overlook the exquisite baked goods and cheeses. We purchased a small insulated cooler that they lined with an ice pak, and we were able to take a nice selection of these goodies with us on the road to enjoy later.

Still think fondly of this spot, and actually liked them on Facebook so I could revisit this great place- even continents away.

The goats and the cheese makes this quite a different wine farm than the rest which is why I would recommend you visit at least once.

Their wines are not to my taste and only a selection of their cheeses are available for tasting but they do rotate now and again.

This would also be lots of fun for the kids.
