Nestled at the foot of the Paarl Mountains, Fairview is a third generation family owned estate, bought by Lithuanian immigrant Charles Back in 1937. His grandson and current owner, Charles, is one of the most innovative and respected wine personalities in South Africa.
Fairview has been producing fine wines under its own label since 1974, and is also the home of Spice Route wines, Agostinelli, and the quirky Goats do Roam range. Always innovative, Charles Back and his team continue to produce top wines, while maintaining the high standards that they have become internationally renowned for. Winemaker Anthony de Jager has the enviable task of selecting from the finest fruit in the area, to produce a wide range of wines and styles.
A visit to the Paarl estate offers one a sensory experience, and welcomes guests to the Fairview family. Only 40 minutes from Cape Town, Fairview estate is a perfect way to spend a stunning Cape summers day.
Wine & Cheese tasting:
One of the most popular tasting rooms in the winelands, Fairview offers over fifty wines, as well as a selection of cheeses for tasting, seven days a week. Knowledgeable, energetic and friendly hosts will guide you through the Fairview taste experience. While often bustling, the Fairview tasting room maintains a relaxed, comfortable environment. Fairview actively encourages guests to visit the farm, and gain understanding of the Fairview brand and culture, and the tasting room is a cornerstone of this philosophy.
Goatshed Farm Eatery:
The Goatshed at Fairview opened in late 2004, and offers visitors to the farm an unsurpassed experience of the Fairview culture, products and atmosphere. The fusion of top wines, gourmet cheeses, a wide range of freshly baked breads, cold meats, olive oil and fine country fare, plays out in an eclectic, relaxed and unpretentious environment. With views of the famous goat tower, and mountain vistas, the eatery is set in the farms original wine cellar. Light meals and cheese platters can be enjoyed either indoors or on the sunny terrace area. Booking is strongly advised.
The Fairview Vineyard Cheesery:
The cheesery has grown immensely over the last ten years, and Fairview is the South African market leader in the speciality cheese sector. Top goats milk from the resident herd of over 600 Saanen goats, as well as the finest Jersey milk is transformed into a mouth-watering array of cheeses. Numerous local and international awards bear testament to the quality and high standards demanded by cheesemaker Louis Lourens and his team. While the factory is not open to the public, visit the tasting room and cheese shop for a taste of the latest offerings, and interesting cheeses not yet available in stores.
