Owner description: Spier is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa, with a recorded history dating back to 1692. Spier's winery has won multiple awards in recent years, including Producer of the Year (Mundus Vini, Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2011). We also performed exceptionally at the 2011 International Wine and Spirits Competition (five Best in Class Gold medals and two trophies), and were the top performing SA winery at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles for three consecutive years. The Spier cellar has ISO 22000 certification, is Fair Trade accredited, organically certified and follows the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) criteria.

We stayed for one night and sampled the spier range at 90 Zar per person which was reasonable enough. Our server was knowledgable and polite. All the wines were lovely and we purchased several bottles for our onward journey. After wine tasting we purchased a picnic, some more wine and sat by the lake in the sun - which was... More

This farm is on a big plot. No cellar tours here. The wine area is nicely decorated. The staff is willing to help, but doesn't look too enthusiastic. They sell chocolate too and some different kinds of cured meat. The chocolate is nice, the cured meat ordinary, nothing special. The prices for the wine tasting are high in comparison to... More

Spier is set on beautiful grounds that are very relaxing. The wine is great and the little take out restaurant has wonderful salads and sandwiches. You can easily spend several hours relaxing at Spier.

We really enjoyed our visit to this wine farm. There are lots of activities offered besides the wine tasting. There is also a craft market, which was unfortunately closed the day we visited, as well as wildlife educational shows, a restaurant and a deli where you can get a picnic basket put together. We enjoyed the wine-tasting experience and our... More

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting Spier Wine Farm. The grounds are superbly maintained and you can taste wine and collect a gourmet hamper and enjoy the delicious food while you relax by the river. The staff was knowledge about their wines and everything we tasted were top class wines.

Had a great time at wine tasting place in Spier. There are three kinds of wine tasting selections and I had the Frans K Smit tasting which includes 7 kinds of Spier's higher tier wine, with just R90. The wine educator was friendly and the wine selection is impressive! Was a very pleasant stay for a wine lover like me... More

We spent three nights at the beautiful Spier Hotel. The staff always sought to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Of course wine tasting is something that is a MUST. There were three different tasting options offered which we really enjoyed. One reason for choosing this hotel was its reputation of being family friendly. There are several playgrounds embedded...

Before my visit I had always had wine from here and loved it. Actually going here made it that much better. No one makes a better Pinotage. The staff is very friendly and will explain all of the details in each wine during your tasting. It's worth it to try some of their more expensive wines while you are here... More
