These goats are a feature of life at the Fairview vineyard in the south Paarl region of Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa.
The vintners have named some vintages after the goats, so it’s possible to choose from selections including “Goats du Roam”, “Bored Doe,” and “Goatfather”.
This marketing ploy has been extended from wines through to T shirts and assorted memorabilia which has landed them in some trouble with the French, who so far haven’t seen the funny side of it!
There’s an interesting photographic display in the main building here (which also houses a restaurant) showing the forefathers who have developed the vineyard over the years. Well worth a visit.
