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 breakfast is great and included in your stay. The fireplace makes for a cosy environment during winter time. Lots of activities on the farm and walks or... More

Staff were friendly, professional and well informed. We'd just had a late breakfast which was a pity as the cheese platters looked delicious!

We didn't have a lot of time in Stellenbosch, so we had a quick visit to Spier and find it very nica. Beautiful place, we picked up a few things to have a picnic at the shop and later on had a chocolate and wine tasting. It was quick but lovely, definetly worths the visit.

I spent a great afternoon with friends tasting wines at this estate. The wine offering is good, the staff knowledgeable and friendly. Proof of the pudding was the amount of wine I bought 😂 Lovely setting but I did not experience their hospitality besides the cheese platter

Such a lovely place to be: in addition to the typical wine bar offerings, and restaurants, you have the option to get fresh, local, picnic-style packaged food for outdoor picnics. You can rent the baskets and blankets etc or bring your own. It's such a great idea and the outdoor space is gorgeous with the river and trees etc. The... More

Beautiful wine farm with the best wine tasting around. Family friendly and caters for kids as well. Great chocolate and cheese wine paring make the wine farm also more special than the most.

Attended a wine tasting as part of a large conference. While I have no idea what the overall costs were, Spier Estate was a great venue to socialise and meet new contacts. The five local wines were superb and were accompanied by a good selection of appetisers. Service was very friendly and knowledgeable. Only regret was that it was nighttime... More

I loved every minute at Spier Wine farm. The wine tastings are incredible. The platters are really tasty. There is so many fun activities for the whole family. From having a picnic, to browsing through the market or having a look at the bird sanctuary. Fun will be had by all.
