The goats here are a delight. Service and food excellent. Lovely position - don't be put off by the temporary roadworks on the route.

In June 2016 I went to Fairview with my classmates in my Executive MBA program and had the opportunity to experience a tour, lunch, tasting, and a meeting with the owner, Charles Back. It was one of the most memorable experiences my classmates and I had on our trip from Connecticut, USA to South Africa! My wife met me in... More

This is a fun spot to explore, drink wine and taste cheese. If you want a unique vineyard experience go here. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for friend and couple photo shoots. Have fun playing with the goats. The cheeses are delicious and you can buy them. Lots of spices, and jams. It is a unique vineyard as they... More

The food was disappointing, unimaginative and way too expensive. Not the great place it used to be. (But the wine and cheese is still top quality, so skip the restaurant and enjoy the rest).

We only ordered platters as they are our current favourite meal at wine estates. Amazing collection of cheeses to choose from for the cheese platter. Sirloin steaks at neighboring table looked delicious. Service is very slow and waiters not in sight when you need them. All in all though a good experience in a beautiful setting.

As you walk toward the tasting room, you are greeted by their goats. They are either roaming around in their area or hiding away in their tower. Once you enter their tasting room, you would be able to taste their wines and cheeses in a pairing. Their staff was very helpful, friendly and made the experience a wonderful one. Make... More

A nice idea to mix wine and cheese tastings, although this year the cheese portions were rather frugal when compared to last years offerings. Still worth a visit and the gardens are lovely, the goats make it a child friendly experience.

We did the cheese and wine tasting at Fairview. It was excellent. The children were well catered for with grape juice and cheeses, whilst we enjoyed the wines too. Lovely large tasting room. Excellent farm shop selling cheese, jams, breads and the like.

What an awesome experience!!! We decided to have lunch and try the wine tasting on our way to our Wellington destination. The master wine tasting experience was just perfect. The Sommelier Dedre was amazing. Well done. I recommend this experience to all tourists visiting the Western Cape. A must do!!

Thank Alanjustin
