DISCOVER THE HOME OF PAARL’S ICONIC GOAT TOWER
Visit South Africa’s second oldest wine route and while doing so learn how you can use Capitec’s Live Better rewards to enjoy more local experiences.
A trip from head office to the winelands home of South Africa’s original and renowned goat’s cheese, was how Capitec’s Kelly Goldsworthy and Sifiso Ntuli decided to treat themselves with their Live Better rewards this month. Rewards which they want all their customers to get the most out of.
For those new to the rewards programme, Kelly, who’s Head of Live Better at Capitec, explains that Capitec’s Live Better is their new rewards programme which provides real cash back and real rewards. It’s all made real simple too, as there’s no complicated tiers, pointless points or extra fees.
Through the programme, you’re rewarded with cash back on your monthly spend just for reaching banking goals. This cash back gets paid into your account every 10th of the month – a day aptly referred to as Live Better Day by the bank.
The Capitec duo visited Fairview, out in Paarl, to showcase how one can use their cash back and savings for an amazing experience that adds value to one’s life.
While there, Neil du Plessis and Donald Mouton, Fairview’s Farm Manager and Estate Managers, treated them to a tour of the facilities and grounds before sitting down for a Master Wine and Cheese Tasting. It’s one of their premium tastings that consists of a delightful selection of 8 wines paired with fresh, scrumptious cheeses, artisanal bread and olive oil.
In addition to the wide range of wines and cow’s cheeses that the third generation family owned estate produces, we uncovered more about its artisanal goats milk cheeses.
Thanks to Cyril Back and his wife falling in love with richly flavoured goats’ milk cheeses while visiting a number of wine farms in France in the 70s, the family some time later decided to import Saanen goats. Their first goats arrived in 1980 and is what set Fairview on the path to becoming one of South Africa’s leading artisanal cheese producers.
The history, good food and excellent beverages ensured it was a rewarding day for Kelly and Sifiso, but more so, it reminded us of the endless selection of original and proudly South African adventures, flavours and destinations that are available for us to explore. All of which are great ways to spend our cash back or live better savings on.
