Ancient History. New Life.
Going since 1692, Spier is one of South Africa’s oldest wine farms, with a fascinating history and a legacy that the owners never take for granted. Today the farm has a modern, conscious energy. Focused on art and good farming, Spier is about farm-to-table food and accoladed wines. Its people are committed to living and working in ways that bring positive change to our environment and community. The Spier Hotel and conference team invite you to do business in an inspiring atmosphere.

After more than three centuries, Spier is still family run. It’s owned and managed by the family who bought the farm in 1993. Spier has a passion for the environment and for supporting the community, buying from and supporting local producers. The owners live on the farm and work hands-on with the farming and leisure operations, together with CEO Andrew Milne, who directs the business.
