The wine tasting was delicious (chocolate pairing) and the host very knowledgeable. It was nice that you could order something to nibble on at the table. Price was very reasonable. The stroll through the park was beautiful and there was an area for kiddies to play as well. Saw beautiful birds and even a few squirrels. Parking area was safe.... More

The wine farm was a welcome stop on a tour of the wine routes of the Cape. The Spier is a well laid out, beautiful wine farm with a great place to have breakfast. The wine tasting was very good and professional. The highlight though was the bird sanctuary/Eagle encounters. The staff held some displays that enthralled the kids. We... More

Staff at all venues I visited where fast friendly and efficient . This is a great family venue as it's not purely focused on wine tasting and there is plenty to do other than... More

This is an excellent place to visit with lots of activities to do including wine tasting, picnics (which you can purchase whilst there), eagle enclosure, moyo restaurant and Segway tours (see my other review). This is a great vineyard to visit as lots for all to see and not overly priced.

We stopped at Spier because they have won some awards recently for their Pinotage. It was not a stellar tasting experience in SA. There is a lot going on that has nothing to do with wine. The wine to me is obviously mass produced with a few better crafted wines thrown in. It took a long time to even be... More

We had a wine and chocolate tasting in the Spier Winery in Stellenbosch. It was very interesting! Chocolate does with anythig in my book, but I was delighted to find that different flavors of chocolate paired better with specific wines. We learned a lot!

This is high class, but worth while. Friendly service, smiling waiters all the way. Good advise on food and wine. Food pricy, but different. We came at high peak lunch time and apologies from the manager for the long wait was appriciated. I recommend this place as a very good experience.

We loved the Spier 21 Gables Chenin Blanc and when we got back to Arlington, VA., we were so pleased to see that our local Total Wine store (Alexandria, VA) stocked some of this fine white wine - perfect for summer bar-b-qs and such. We also liked the Spier 21 Gables Pinotage - a wine unique to South Africa, a... More
