Fairview Wine Estate
I like to think of Fairview as my little French Cape Provence. From my point of view this enchanting spot for Sunday lunch or drive out there mid-week is so worth it. It has become one of my favorite summertime haunts.
When a friend of mine arrived from Paris lets call her the Bees knees, we decided to do a tasting experience and compare our taste buds to see how they differed? (Quelle Surprise!)
First we chose to grade our cheese platter. We both loved the Vat No 3, which unfortunately is not for sale but available on the menu. The Cream Cheese with Chakalaka, I gave a 10, Bees knees gave it a 6. I loved the Chevre with Black Pepper & Paprika and gave it a 10, she gave it a 7. I loved the White Rock with Cranberries giving it a 10, she almost agreed with me and gave it a 9.
No matter what your taste is, the experience is fun and varied. We also chose a main, a traditional Cape dish, the Waterbloomtjies (waterflowers) it was new to both of us and we totally agreed that it was absolutely delicious!
Fairview’s cheese is excellent! Their wine is good, their menu is traditional and on a grand scale, it has the charm of ‘La Provence’! En fait! Compliments to the chef.
