The Spier Experience
Spier is one of the Stellenbosch winelands' most celebrated destinations. Our wine farm has sweeping views of the Helderberg mountain range, and lies besides the calming waters of the Eerste River.
Spier is located in the heart of South Africa's wine-growing region, just 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
Beyond our award winning wine and scenic beauty part of what makes Spier unique is its ethical approach to business. As witness to this approach Spier was one of the first organisations in the country to be accredited by Fair Trade in Tourism SA. Spier was also the first winery to be accredited by the Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association. We hope that a visit to our farm will inspire fresh insights, discovery and reflection as we journey together towards a sustainable future.
The Spier Way
Spier is a place defined by its heritage of the land and the people who have made it their home. Located in the heart of the Cape winelands, we have emerged as a producer of award-winning wine and offer a luxury experience at our hotel and conference centre.
While going about our daily business at Spier, we recognise that we operate in a rapidly changing world. We therefore believe it is important to honour our heritage and encourage its expression, but at the same time inspire a different view of the future. That is why a visit to our wine farm is not a typical winelands experience. Our winemaking style respects tradition yet challenges convention, and we are home to a diverse collection of activities.
These include a variety of eating experiences, from farm-to-table dining to a sophisticated African restaurant, as well as wildlife conservation programmes and one of South Africa’s most extensive collections of contemporary art displayed in our public spaces. Against the backdrop of historic winelands buildings, this stirring combination can provoke fresh insights for guests at Spier.
In keeping with our ethos of doing things differently, Spier has developed a distinctive approach to business which strives to balance prosperity with social and environmental aims. This has led to us becoming a pioneer in sustainable business practices.
