Many moons ago, a weary traveller named Attila Balèbôs arrived at the Fairview cellar door on his unique three-wheeled motorcycle. Being an affable and hospitable man, Cyril Back (Charles’ late father) invited him to stay for a few days. Very quickly, Charles and Attila became friends, working the farm by day, and sharing life stories over wine and cheese by night. But one morning, Attila was gone, leaving only his rusting relic of his bike. To this day, the bike still stands silent on the Tasting Room stoep, and served as inspiration for our amazing La Capra range – fruit forward, single variety wines that celebrates youth, new friends, and easy drinking wine.
