The World’s Best Vineyards ranking recognises Spier as one of the 100 best places worldwide to visit for amazing wine experiences. The inclusion of our historic Stellenbosch farm is a testament to our team’s dedication to delivering experiences that are adored by travellers from around the world.
While a visit to Spier guarantees top-notch wine and delicious food, our farm remains down-to-earth and accessible to all. Whether you’re on a family getaway, a romantic escape or travelling as a group, your time at Spier will be unforgettable.
Enjoying wine at Spier
Sample, savour and stock up on Spier’s internationally acclaimed wines at our Tasting Room. If the weather’s warm, enjoy your tasting outside, on the shade-covered stoep, which offers front-row views of the farm dam and majestic Helderberg mountains. On cooler days, the airy, art-filled interior – with its Heath Nash chandelier of 334 wine bottles! – is a delight (come winter, our vote for the best seat in the house is by the roaring fire).
Conducted by one of our friendly and knowledgeable wine educators, our set tastings have been designed to give you a mouthwatering overview of what our winery has to offer. But if you’d prefer to just enjoy a glass (or bottle!) of something, you’re welcome to. Feeling peckish? Order an olive, cheese or cured meat board, or try our seasonal tastings, which features wines artfully matched with delectable canapes.
Our year-round tastings:
Spier Tasting: Choose three wines from our Signature range and one from each of the three premium wine ranges, 21 Gables, Creative Block and Seaward
Chocolate and wine tasting: Inspired by the Spier Cap Classique and our Spier Creative Block blends, the chocolatier has carefully crafted chocolates that complement and unlock nuanced flavours in each of our liquid treasures.
Winemaker Selection: Taste from our 21 Gables and Creative Block ranges plus the organic red blend, Spier First Stone
Children's Grape Juice Tasting: Keep the youngsters busy with a tasting of two different grape juices and an educational activity sheet highlighting the role insects play in our vineyards
Take it home! Once you’re done with your tasting, stock up on your newfound Spier favourites, which are available for purchase at cellar door prices.

More things to do at Spier
Unwind with a picnic lunch under the oaks or next to the rambling Eerste River, or enjoy a low-and-slow roasted feast at Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery. Feeling indecisive? Build your own picnic from the fresh salads, cheese, charcuterie and sandwiches at the Farm Café. Whichever you choose, we know your tastebuds will be delighted.
Our farm is your playground. We invite you to explore our pastures, food garden and vineyards on foot, bike or Segway. The little ones can explore the Elemental Garden’s swing bridge and slide or run free among the Werf’s granite boulders – or take them to meet birds-of-prey at Eagle Encounters, our raptor rehabilitation centre.
Art is everywhere at Spier. Ranging from soaring sculptures to contemporary canvases, these works have been created by both the unsung heroes and the leading luminaries of South African art.
If you’re not ready to leave, we’ve got that covered too. After a pampering spa treatment, rest your head at the four-star Spier Hotel, which offers cosy country-style accommodation – along with swimming pools for summer and blazing fires for winter.
