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

We enjoyed a picnic we made up from their store sat watching the river and birds snoozed in the awesome winter sun. Lovely picnic spot. Sid not try their wine but had pear cider and craft beer we loved it.

We decided to drop in for a picnic. Their website said that we had to pre-book but we were delighted to find that you can pick food from a deli-style food shop, rent a blanket and go and have a picnic lunch in their scenic gardens. Being in the off-season and on a Monday, they were was not busy at... More

The Farm is amazing. Filled with lots of space for picnics or to use for special occasions. The wine is really good. Service is efficient, the food is exquisite and the chocolate to go with the wines is just perfect. Definitely a farm to go see again.
