Fairview Farm, Paarl, Western Cape

Fairview Farm, Paarl, Western CapeFairview Farm has a proud history going way back to 1699 when the first wines were made. The original homestead built around 1722, lost to the estate during one of the many subdivisions has been reincorporated and lovingly restored by the current owner, Charles Back II. His grandfather, Charles Back I and subsequently his father, Cyril, set the farm on track to become one of the top wine exporting estates in the country.

Fairview now owns farms in a number of areas in the Western Cape preferring to “go where the terroir is” rather than sticking to making the wine from a single estate. This approach enables the winemaker to produce top quality blended wines. Some three decades ago, Cyril Back introduced a dairy goat herd to the farm. Today the farm produces top quality cheeses using the milk from the goat herd and the herd of Jersey cows. Roydon Camembert, the flagship product in the range, was awarded the Gold Medal at the World Cheese Awards no less than 5 times in 7 years.

Enjoy a mouthwatering array of cheese platters, fresh breads and salads at the Goatshed Mediterranean-style eatery offering light meals and lunches in an informal atmosphere – open from 9h00 to 17h00 daily

Combine your wine tasting with the excellent cheeses in the Tasting Room from 9h00 to 17h00 daily.
