Fairview has so much to offer it has wine and cheese tasting a stunning restaurant, in fact more than one. Not far down is the beer tasting as well as the chocolate tasting. What a way to spend a few hours.

Fairview was our first stop on our wine tasting tour, and it was BY FAR the BEST of all the wineries we went to! We did the 7 wines paired with cheese that were so perfect together. The team did an excellent job pairing the delicious cheeses with the right wines. They also had great olive oil on the table to have with some bread, so good that we went through three bread baskets :)

The ice wine in specific was so good!

Fairview is a very good place to taste wine and cheese. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. We tasted 6 different wines and some of them were very well paired with cheese tastings in the deli area. The entire place is lovely and also includes a tower with goats in it.

Juhann, our sommelier for our wine tasting, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We tasted six wines, and after each pairing, we were sent to the deli area to sample the artisanal cheeses. We have tried South Africa wines before, but were delighted to try varieties that were unfamiliar, like pinotage. The deli area also offers bread baked on the premises, and gourmet condiments. We purchased bread, wine and cheese, which we later enjoyed for our dinner back at our B & B in Cape Town.

The winery buildings and grounds are lovely and include a goat tower with goats! They offer a "Goats do Roam" line of wines, with a picture of the goat on the label!
