Over the years, the Goatshed has re-invented itself, with a new look and logo being rolled out in 2016. However, some things are too good to change, and that's particularly true for our our Head Chef SJ Nel and our Goatshed pies. Ever since they...

It's deepest, darkest winter time. We get it. That means it's cold, you don't really want to go outside right? You'd rather stay cosy, inside, curled up under a blanket with a good glass of Fairview wine. And we don't blame you! But the truth...

In 2015, we released our now very popular Bloemcool range, which has been a best-seller via our Master Tasting Room and Wine Club ever since. The concept of Bloemcool is relatively simple: Charles and the winemaking team wanted to introduce a new avenue to bottle smaller...

Recently, we released something extra special that Charles and the winemaking team have been working on. Since we started the Fairview Wine Club last year, Charles's intent has been to craft a special and exclusive bottling to be able to offer our wine club members...

We know that not everyone is a wine lover. But surely everyone is a cheese lover? This autumn, we're digging into our dessert cheese range, namely our White Rock with Dried Cranberries, White Rock with Glazed Fig, White Rock with Pear and Caramel and White...

The month of May calls for many celebrations - the cooler months bringing with it a relief in the hot weather that has spurred on one of the worst droughts the Cape has endured in many decades, a calmer time in our cellar as harvest...

  There is a stranger (extraño in Spanish) in the Cape’s vineyards, named Tempranillo. Originally from Spain, Tempranillo now grows in local soils and produces grapes of exceptional quality. We’ve carefully integrated fellow Spaniards Grenache and Carignan – who add spice, fruit and freshness – to help...
