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.

Lovely place to visit. Good for a break away 3 to 5 days vacation. The eagle and falcon encounter is very nice for childrens . Bring your camera. Also if it is raining it is not good to move there. And snake cannot be out if it is rainy. You can take photos with owls and Eagles.

Lovely lovey place, fantastic grounds, we stayed in signature rooms and they are very large with a fireplace Wine tasting is a must and if it's a nice day then a picnic around the lake is a great thing to do, bar area nice and open 2 restaurants but didn't try either, spa but also didn't try

An incredibly helpful Wine Educator named Tyson introduced my boyfriend and myself to the Frans K Smit wine tasting (R90). We tasted 6 wines, starting with white and heading on to red, from Spier's special collection (Gables 21, Creative Block and finally the eponymous Frans K Smit). Each wine was explained before tasting, and we were left to enjoy the... More

Good visit with nice encounters especially for children to touch and interact with birds! The eagle show was a little disappointing compared to European shows but still worth while if you are there - check show times and arrive just before!

The wine offering compliments the weekend. We strolled the grounds, visited the beach close by, a day at the aquarium and V&A for lunch, wine tasting where they had a... More

Very ordinary wines. The tasting lady seemed to have rote learned her speech and couldn't deviate from the spiel. Seemed very commercial and had no intimacy or warmth
