For those who haven't yet had the chance to visit- The SA Weddings team have found our favourite office escape in
Fairview Estate, it's a third generation family owned farm, located on the slopes of Paarl Mountain in the heart of our beautiful winelands. It's an estate that's known for the two things it creates at expert standards- cheese and wine and in our books, what could be better!
Expect a friendly welcome from the goats on arrival (especially if you're carrying treats) and be prepared to lose track of time here, getting lost in the beautiful garden spaces, picnicking or enjoying a leisure lunch in the renowned restaurant.
It's been an exiting start to the new year for Fairview, as they've once again made the South African cheese industry proud with achievements at the recent World Cheese Awards. Fairview took home three prestigious international awards for its high-quality artisanal cheese making it a leader in the local and global cheese industry... As if you needed more excuse to support local and stock up on some weekend deliciousness!
Other than the on site-restaurant, wine tasting and beautiful garden space- the property also boasts a bustling deli section, filled with all the gourmet goodness your basket could possible hold. From their full range of delicious cheeses to preserves, confectionery, nuts, freshly baked goods, homemade lemonade as well as one of our favourite new finds: the frozen yoghurt, that we suggest you stock up on this summer, make sure you have enough time to fully wander this foodie-heaven hotspot. Bring the family or friends along too, for the perfect day out with something on offer for everyone!
