Fairview Warms Up Winter With Hearty Food-And-Wine Dinners


The Goatshed restaurant at Fairview Wine and Cheese Estate in Paarl is hosting another annual series of its famous winter evenings. After last year’s sold-out events, the hearty food-and-wine dinners are back by demand. From the beginning of June to the end of September 2017, the Goatshed – which is usually a day venue – will be open on seven selected evenings and will serve a three-course paired menu.

Co-owner of the country-style eatery, Shannon Riley plays host while resident chef, SJ Nel serves up well-loved Fairview classics alongside themed dinners that are inspired by a world of cultures and tastes. Fairview is renowned for its award-winning selection of artisanal cheeses and a broad range of handcrafted, star-quality wines, and these will once again be a staple feature of the winter evenings.

Under floor heating, wood fires and soul-warming wines will melt the cold Cape Town winter, allowing guests to fully enjoy the exceptional quality of Fairview’s fresh farm produce. In addition to cheese and wine, Fairview produces its own free-range lamb, beef and pork, farm butter, fresh artisanal loaves and pastries that are baked daily, a range of olives, preserves, relishes, spreads and cordials.

Each winter evening comes with a different theme and presents dishes inspired by international destinations. As these evenings sell-out in advance, pre-booking is essential. The evenings take place on the following dates:

28 July: Greek Celebration

25 August: Fairview Free-range Lamb Shank & Shiraz

8 September: Italian Feast

29 September: Moroccan

Tickets are R395 per person and include a 3-course meal and wine. Each course is paired with award-winning Fairview wines.
