Established in 1693, Fairview cellar with its spectacular view of Table Mountain lies on the south western slopes of Paarl at the Cape of Good Hope. Fairview was purchased by my grandfather in 1937 and I am the third generation of my family to make wine here. We have vineyards in the leading coastal grape producing areas, where geographic and climatic diversity allows us to craft a range of truly distinctive wines, complemented by Fairview’s range of award winning artisanal cheeses. To Life!

in the vineyard : Mourvedre enjoys warm weather and the smell of the ocean, hence grapes were sourced from two sites - from our vineyards in Paarl on decomposed granite soils and from our vineyards in Stellenbosch on sand and clay soil. Summer canopy management practices include topping, partial leaf removal and shoot positioning to ensure sunlight penetration into the canopy.
