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.

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

We stayed at spier for a long weekend in the wine country. The room was beautiful with access to a lovely back garden with a pool. The kids club house was fantastic for our 4 & 2yr olds. Chantal, the nanny, was very good with the kids which made it easier to drop them off while we had spa treatments... More

We took part in the amazing Segway tour, which takes you through the whole wine estate. Eric the guide was very informative and knowledgable. This is the best of all the wine estates we have visited in Stellenbosch. They even have a self produced restaurant using only resources from the farm itself. Make sure you fit this into your trip.

Unfortunately, we had limited time so the choice was lunch or a wine tasting...we went with lunch. The service at the restaurant was excellent! All of the tables that were in the sun were taken, so the head waitress organised for a table to be moved into the sun for us. Her service and that of the team throughout our... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of April & what a special, memorable time we had! We were travelling around SA on honeymoon & our time here was a highlight! The staff could not have been more warm, friendly, helpful - a pleasure to deal with. Our room was of an excellent standard - the gas fire... More

We decided to visit Spier for a wine tasting on a rainy day, and we were pleasantly surprised to find some excellent wines at good prices. This was our first outing to a wine tasting and it was beautifully done. Our hosts presented us with lovely wines and we paired them with a delectable cheese and meats platter which was... More
