Goats are known for loving to climb. They have been known to climb on top of other livestock in a farm to get a better view. Charles Back, the owner of Fairview Wine and Cheese, came up with the idea of building the goat tower in 1981. At the time he had a herd of around 750 Saanen goats, so they probably vie for a spot on the tower. The winery at the farm also came up with the name “Goats do Roam” for their wines, which is a play on the French wine produced in Côtes du Rhône.
