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

Just the simplest idea of having such a big variety of wine tastings is just great. They cater for just about everybody that would like to taste some wine with maybe chocolate or simply cheese. And not to talk about the side platters that is on offer, just ideal for comfort and very relaxing. The staff as well compliments the... More

We enjoyed a wine tasting, cheese and meat platter. Very friendly and we were never hurried so enjoyed a leisurely relaxed lunch. Very nice overall and would return if in the area again.

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
