    @ Fairview Cheese & Wine
    Our Goatshed Evenings are back this year with a revived twist!
    This year, we’ve decided to introduce a strong relationship between the food and wine pairings, by complementing the Goatshed dinners to our most food-focused wine range, titled the Regional Revival Range.

    The Regional Revival Range consists of the following 6 wines:
    1. Fairview Brut MCC
    2. Fairview Drie Papen Fontein
    3. Fairview Nurok
    4. Fairview Homtini
    5. Fairview Extrano
    6. Fairview Caldera

    Each wine is brimming with a decorative label and enticing story to tell, as well as orientated with a specific wine region in mind. Take for example our first dinner coming up on the 27th May 2018: The Homtini Italian Dinner.

    Homtini translates as a ‘difficult passage’ in the long-forgotten Khoi language. The Homtini pass, near Knysna, winds its way through indigenous forests. This was once the home of our winemaker, Anthony de Jager’s Italian ancestors, the Rabbolinis, who were silk farmers from Northern Italy. They immigrated to South Africa under the misconception that mulberry trees grew in abundance. On arrival they discovered that no mulberry trees existed, but through tenacity and hard work, they tamed the land and ultimately prospered in other trades, including wine-making.

    The wine is a Tuscan-style blend of Italian variety Sangiovese, integrated with a touch of Cabernet Sauvingon and Merlot. The wine is crafted to go perfectly with Italian-style dishes, such as tomato-based sauces, breads and cheese. Here is a breakdown of the menu you can expect to savour on the evening:


    Selection of cured meats [ Mortadella, Salami, Coppa, Pastrami ]
    Freshly baked breads [ Ciabatta, Focaccia ]
    Mozzarella, tomato & herb pesto salad
    Goats’ cheese & caramelized onion Bruschetta
    Fegato d’anatra (duck liver) paté
    Pork, fennel & sage

    Mushroom Casarecce

    “Bistecca alla Goatshed”
    Roasted Sirloin, polenta & Mediterranean garnish


    Try your hand as pizzaiolo in between courses at our wood fired pizza oven station

    Throw out the pesticides! Make use of predatory birds, insects, spiders and other garden animals to restore the natural balance in your garden. This can be achieved by companion planting, installing owl and bat boxes, and also by creating a safe haven for reptiles and frogs.

    We will help you plan a well-balanced garden that encourages local indigenous animals, increases biodiversity and restores the natural order, thereby freeing you from using chemicals. You can also have a well-balanced, crystal-clear pond without being carried away by mosquitos.

    Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.

    Brei ʼn lang pad na vryheid oop vir Mandela-dag / Knit a long way to freedom for Mandela Day (English below)

    Dit is in jul hande om 'n beter wêreld vir almal wat daarin woon te skep - Madiba

    Maak jou breipenne skerp en trek enige wol af van jou oë, want die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument (ATM) bied op Saterdag, 9 Junie 2018, weer hul jaarlikse brei-athon ter viering van Nelson Mandela-dag aan.

    Dié inisiatief, wat in samewerking met die Paarl Museum en Vriende van Paarl Museum asook die Dorkas en Busy Beez vroueklubs gedoen word, skakel in by die dag se doel om individue te inspireer om die wêreld ’n beter plek te maak deur 67 minute van hul tyd te gee om ’n verskil in iemand se lewe te maak. In aanloop tot die dag kan skenkings van nie-bederfbare kos, skryfbehoeftes en klere ook by die museums afgelaai word.

    Deelnemers kan behoeftiges se harte warmer laat klop en hulle help om die winter te trotseer deur ʼn kledingstuk, hetsy ʼn serp, trui of kombers, vir hulle te brei. Almal word uitgedaag om te brei; indien jy nie kan brei nie, sal die klubs jou leer voor jy nog die woord “pen” kan sê. Mense kan ook vooraf items brei en op die dag afgee of in die museum voltooi.

    Die brei-athon vind van 09:00 tot 14:00 by Paarl Museum op Van der Lingenplein plaas. Deelnemers moet hul eie breipenne saambring en word aangemoedig om wol saam te bring, maar wol (én verversings) sal verskaf word.
    Die breiwerk sal op 18 Julie saam met sop en brood aan behoeftige volwassenes en kinders uitgedeel word.

    Enige skenkings van wol, nie-bederfbare kos, skryfbehoeftes vir kinders, bruikbare ou klere en komberse is ook welkom. Dit moet teen 11 Julie 2018 afgegee word by die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum in Pastorielaan of Paarl Museum op Van der Lingenplein.

    Knit a long way to freedom for Mandela Day
    It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it - Madiba

    Sharpen your knitting needles and don't let anyone pull the wool over your eyes, because the Afrikaans Language Museum and Monument (ATM) will be hosting its annual knit-athon in celebration of Nelson Mandela Day on Saturday, 9 June 2018.

    This initiative, which is done in conjunction with Paarl Museum and Friends of Paarl Museum as well as the Dorkas and Busy Beez women clubs, is in line with the day's goal of inspiring individuals to make the world a better place by giving 67 minutes of their time to make a difference in someone's life. In the run-up to the day, donations of non-perishable food, stationery and clothing can also be dropped off at the museums.

    Participants can warm the hearts of the needy and help them to survive the winter by knitting a garment for them, such as a scarf, sweater or blanket. Everybody is challenged to knit; if you cannot knit, the clubs will teach you faster than you can say the word "needle". People can also knit articles beforehand and bring it to the museum on the day or finish them in the museum.

    The knit-athon takes place from 09:00 to 14:00 at Paarl Museum on Van der Lingen square. Participants must bring their own knitting needles and are encouraged to bring wool, but wool (and refreshments) will be provided. The knitting will be handed out with soup and bread to adults and children in need on 18 July.

    Any donations of wool, non-perishable food, stationery for children, useful old clothes and blankets are also welcome. It must be dropped off by 11 July 2018 at the Afrikaans Language Museum in Pastorie Avenue or Paarl Museum on Van der Lingen square.

    For inquiries, contact Verinque Hendriks on 021 872 3441 or vakkundige@taalmuseum.co.za.

    @ Babylonstoren
    With two-thirds of South Africa being semi-arid, gardening can be challenging and thus we have a new obsession – succulents. Grow local species in your drought-tolerant garden and add to its architectural features some of the larger euphorbias and aloes. They vary from low ground covers to large shrubs and even trees of 10 m tall.

    After walking with us through our new cycad garden, looking at various succulent ground covers and species, Ernst shares tips during an illustrated talk. In the afternoon we’ll get practical and learn how to grow succulents from seed and cuttings.

    Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.
