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.

“Great experience, lots to do here!”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

What a wonderful wine farm! We flew in to Cape Town and this was my first experience of Stellenbosch - boy was I impressed! The wine tasting and tasting plates were absolutely fantastic, the lady that assisted us knew all of the wines inside out, service could not be faulted! Such a beautiful estate to walk through after lunch as well. Definitely recommend everyone to visit

“Moya Restaurant and Wine tasting”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

Moya Restaurant is to be complimented on the extent of food offerings - it is an amazing spread. Something for everyone -
Wine tasting was pretty average, as the persons giving the info were not that clued up on the wines on offer

“A good day trip”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Whether you are staying in the Cape winelands or in the not too far away Cape Town, I can recommend a visit to the Spier winery. Wine tasting is really cheap and there are some wonderful locally produced South African wines available to taste and buy. There are also activities for kids such as an animal farm and restaurants where you can have a good meal in a very chilled atmosphere while taking in the views of the beautiful Stellenbosch region.

“Heavenly food and wine - Be Creative”
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.
