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.

I really liked the style of the rooms and the reception area. It doesn't have the usual traditional wineland feel, but rather a contemporary and modern style with loads of terrific local art. The service was really good and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Well worth a visit - obviously Spier wine is the main attraction here (which... More

I absolutely love this wine farm. It's far too expensive sadly, but the grounds are stunning and it is also home to Eagle Encounters, one of my favourite raptor places. Definitely recommended.

We all had different things but it was all very good. After we went to the bird sanctuary. We found out that there was... More

There are various wine tastings at Spier, we chose the Frans K Smit Tasting which was R90 and allows you to taste 7 of the more expensive wines. Tasting was very well guided by our hostess, Jacki, and she was very knowledgeable on all the Spier wines that interested us.

We went as a quick visit to the onsite market and grounds but ended up having a wine tasting. Opted for mid level tasting missing out their top punch-in-the-wallet wine which would have doubled the cost. The service was clinical and formulaic with no personality. I felt like we were wasting their time, until we decided to spend quite a... More

During a business trip to Cape Town I wanted to relax outside the city (while keeping my expenses down). I was surprised to find a comfortable villetta on a gorgeous vineyard with a gourmet restaurant! Clean, comfortable, courteous, absolutely nothing bad to say, and I saved money!

Perfect for couple's or family's that would like to enjoy the outdoors with a nice picnick basket and excellent wine from their estate! Order a picnick basket of your choice a day in advance and just collect on arrival.

The place is just amazing! Whether you are looking for some wine testing experience, encounter with wild birds, have a picnic in the garden or simply enjoy a meal at the restaurant, this place is worth a visit. I particularly enjoyed walking around the gardengardens and the chocolates & wine pairing was simply amazing. A plus is that they have... More

We visited Spier for a wine tasting and we weren't let down. The ladies were very knowledgeable on the subject, so much so we purchased two mixed cases which were consumed a lot quicker than anticipated! I usually only choose one type of wine but from this experience I can definitely say it's broadened my horizons! Would love a return... More
