in the vineyard : 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!      -      Charles Back

The trellised Fairview vines grow on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, on decomposed granite soils.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand-picked early morning.
