A little group of goats once escaped from their paddock into the Fairview vineyards, where they roamed and selected some of the ripest berries from the vines.
Goats do roam at Fairview! From their famous tower next to our tasting room and the Goatsbed Restaurant, they have a view over the surrounding vineyards and the magnificent Pearl Valley. These curious and mischievous animals not only provide joy to us and our visitors, but also produce high quality milk for our award-winning cheeses.
Occasionally they jump the paddock and stray into the vineyards, sampling delicious bunches of grapes… just like our winemaking team who are constantly sampling from the vineyards of the Cape, in search of those special grapes for this full-flavoured blend.
