The cheese tasting is a must. The goats are super cute and provides entertainment.. Especially when going over the bridge

We had a wonderful cheese and wine tasting with friends and family over Easter Weekend. The lady that helped us with the tasting was so friendly and she had loads of knowledge - which made the wine tasting so much more interesting. They offer 2 types of tastings which is great because you get to decide which one you would... More

Actually very let down with the meal It's was bland tasteless steamed old fashioned vegetables. No coke Only thing I would recommend is the cheese and wine platter. We had beef pie with vegetables and the most random salad. Daughter had risotto cakes also had no taste at all. Would not return.

Wine and cheese tasting. Goats for the kids entertainment. Large open spaces for playing. Busy on Sunday afternoons but still space with lots of parking but weather dependent for children I would think. Will go back.

Nice spot to stop over for a lunch when doing the wine route. Great for the kids to stretch their legs and the resturant is nice. Food is average though. They have a nice shop for wine tasting which keeps the wives happy. All in all a nice place.

Enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting and cheese pairing. We had an excellent hostess who was very knowledgeable about the wines and cheeses and answered all of our questions. Great experience. The grounds are lovely. They raise their own goats and sheep for their cheeses.

Fairview boasts an impressive collection of wines, both local and those with an international flavor for the more adventurous taste buds. They also offer a master tasting for their more exclusive wines. You can opt to do the wine tasting on its own, or combine it with a selection of paired cheeses (not to be missed is their creamy traditional... More

This was probably our 13th visit to the farm. And highly disappointing. We waited a very long time to be helped at the tasting counters, and obviously the current staff cannot cope with the number of visitors. The new set up of the wine and cheese together does not work in my opinion.

Fairview seems to be growing both in size and reputation all the time. More of a tourist stop off than the last time I visited, cheese portions in the tasting are rather frugal than my previous visit (but then again they would probably go out of business with people like me around), good to try from two standard tasting menus,...
