Meanwhile, adults can sample Spier’s award-winning wines at multiple wine tasting stations along the route.

The offer includes a complimentary bottle of wine from the Spier 21 Gables range and a premium wine tasting. Guests also have the option to book a table for a special Easter-themed lunch and dinner.
Easter Wonderland Scavenger Hunt
The Easter Bunny has a lot of delicious fun in store for the little ones. They’ll need their problem-solving skills to search for five clues hidden around the farm. With a map in hand, and a little parental guidance if you’d like to join, they will gather all five clues in exchange for a surprise Easter hamper. If the adults are feeling left out, they can apply their own problem-solving skills at various tasting stations along the route to determine which wine is their favourite.
