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.

There's so much on offer at Spier. We just went for a picnic - a pick your own basket which you can chose on the day from Eight shop in the heart of the estate. Very good value and lots of choice of where to sit in stunning surroundings. It was a busy summer Saturday afternoon when we visited but... More

Spier was at the top of my list for which farms to visit with kids (ages 13, 11 and 9) because there was so much to do, including a grape juice tasting for them. After our tasting, we went to the deli and made our own basket for a picnic. I had planned to order one of their baskets ahead... More

A great tour of the pretty wine farm 2 hours on segways covering lots of different terrain . The Segways are easy to operate once you get the hang of it !! A fun thing to do as a family with teenagers and it's only 35 minutes from capetown .

I've read reviews here stating that the place is too expensive and not worth the prices they charge but decided to visit anyway because of the supporting reviews regarding the atmosphere and the welcoming staff. We had a chocolate and wine tasting for 2 adults with a gang of 4 kids, for which we asked some grape fruit for "tasting".... More

Went there with my family and spend the day eating on there well prepared deli food with great wine under the trees. Kids loved playing around on the grass while we had a relaxing time sitting and having a well deserved rest.

We would ordinarily not have visited such a commercialized wine farm, but wanted to do the SEGWAY tours offered at the estate. In the end we are EXTREMELY glad we visited.

We tried to book a picnic, and they never responded by email or answered the phone, and the online form didn't work. When they finally answered, they said they wouldn't do a picnic basket because it wasn't 24 hours notice. So we went to create our own picnic. They charge R25 for 500ml of water, R40 for ice and R30... More
