WHERE DO YOU FIND CHEESE, WINE AND FURRY MASCOTS?

Founded in 1693, this working cheese and wine farm is home to a variety of attractions including a fresh-produce deli for take-home goods, a bakery, tasting room, tasting classes and the popular Goatshed Restaurant.

The charming Goatshed Restaurant serves farm-to-table fare in a luxury atmosphere. For the warmer months, there is a large undercover patio and a seating area under the vines with views of the garden and the goats. Visitors can also dine inside for a more rustic feel in the converted barn.

The Goat Tower, adored by children and adults alike, has been home to Fairview’s beloved furry mascots since 1981 and is a favourite Cape Winelands icon. It is a win-win situation because adults visit the spacious cheese and wine tasting room and the young ones can’t get enough of the goats climbing up and down the tower and bridge!

Thanks to a long-held reputation for their exceptional customer service, Fairview has made the most seasoned food pairing – cheese and wine – one of the most sought-after wine tastings in the Cape Winelands. The pairing features an assortment of six to eight of Fairview’s Jersey milk and goat’s milk cheeses with a selection of their fine wines. Visitors can also visit the renowned Fairview cheesery.

Named after owner Charles Back’s, late mother, the Beryl Back Master Tasting Room continues to practice the legacy of warmth and hospitality that Beryl so lovingly instilled. Managed by highly qualified Tasting Hosts, the elegant Beryl Back tasting room is set apart from the main tasting area, offering seated, tutored and tailored tastings in an exclusive, educational setting. Each Master Tasting comes with carefully paired Fairview cheese, freshly baked artisanal bread and their farm-made olive oil.

Everything Fairview does is guided by their philosophy that fresh and homemade is always better. They aim to bring the paddock and the farm as close as possible to visitors to experience a truly authentic and unique Cape Winelands visit.
