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...

  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...

Recently, we planted a new vineyard. As you can imagine, this doesn't happen all that often, so the occasion becomes quite auspicious on the farm. The process may seem straightforward - dig a couple of holes, put some baby grapevines in them and fill the...

The wine is called Goats do Roam. No, not Côtes-du-Rhône. And yes, it was always intended to be like that. As you’ll know by now, I’ve always enjoyed tweaking sensibilities – French or otherwise. Goats Do Roam was born out of my love for my...

Today we are celebrating this robust, flavourful grape with the release of our new vintage of Bloemcool Tinto Fino Tempranillo 2014 – a wine that sold out as quickly as it hit our Tasting Room last year! We introduced the maiden Bloemcool range in 2015, and...

Saturday, 9th November this year marks International Tempranillo Day - a day we are most definitely celebrating! As big advocates of the Spanish variety, we've used it in a range of our wines, most recently the Fairview Extrano and Fairview Broken Barrel. When reflecting on bringing...

Buying wine online might seem a little foreign. After all, wine is a sensual experience, incorporating your sight, smell and taste - none of which is really available digitally. That said, if you know the exact glug you're after (or trust recommendations), then what's the...

If you’ve ever tried some of our Single Vineyard wines, you might have come across the term ‘old vines’. But what exactly do we mean by that? It’s quite simple really. We mean vines that are old. And why is this worth writing about? Well, every...

We're thrilled to announce our most recent award winners in the 2017 Shiraz SA Wine Challenge. On the 31st May 2017, Fairview once again proved its prowess in the cultivation of this red grape varietal, as a total of four of our Shiraz wines were...

One of the key philosophical traits Fairview has orientated itself around is to always push the boundaries of traditional winemaking. For decades, our team has done this by planting varieties that are best suited to their surroundings. One of our latest releases is one such variety,...

With thousands of grape varieties out there, about 1,300 of which are used to make wine commercially, we don’t blame you if you find it tricky to identify your Pinot Noir’s from your Pinotage’s. That’s why we’re introducing a new monthly blog, Cellar Sessions, that...
