Owner description: 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.

“Heavenly food and wine - Be Creative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

This is a superb vineyard with all facilities you could want. Beautiful setting and is suitable for a full fun filled day. Lots to see and do - farm tours, wine tasting etc. I ate in the 8 restaurant and the food was divine. Had the pork belly and it was delicious. As for the wines, I could not fault the premium wines. Got to try them. The staff were very very helpful and knowledgeable. Will buy Spier wines when I see them again on a wine menu.

“Execellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

The use of eco-friendly designs for the interior of the hotel impressed me. The food was great. The rooms at the resort are large and beautiful. The outdoor trails and scenery creates a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant and room manager were also very friendly and helpful.

“Enjoyable atmospheric intro to Stellenbosch wine lands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012 via mobile

Common perception that a bit too commercial, but worked for us.

Really nice to see their ecological credentials and awareness.

Also tried there outdoor restaurant/cafe for buffet dinner. What a dinner! Great dishes, vegans well catered for, inclusion of samp and bean, veg biryani, spinach plus fresh veg.
