Owner description: 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.

Stopped there only to visit the Cheetahs and other animals, they are doing a marvellous job looking after and breeding a variety of endangered south african species

Yesterday we went for a drive in the winelands and ended up at Spier and were pleasantly surprised with how much it has changed and been updated.

First we started off at the Cheetah sanctuary, where for a meer R5 you have the opportunity to view the Cheetahs and chat to the guides. Then for an extra R220 you can have an encounter with the Cheetahs - awesome stuff!

Then we moved on to the Bird sanctuary, and there a mere R30 gains you access to loads of raptors in rehabilition and the opportunity to hold them and stroke them.

Then we moved on to the picnic shop and bought all the ingredients for a yummy picnic and sat outside underneath the trees relaxing.

What an awesome way to spend a Sunday.

On the downside it must be noted that the food at Spier is expensive (albeit tasty and fresh), as well as all the touristy type of stalls. I guess it's the perfect trap for an unsuspecting tourist, but us South Africans know that those prices are a huge rip off.

No only is the wine fabulous but the in house deli has an amazing range of foods in order to build your own picnic.

Good for family picnics but a bit too touristy for a romantic getaway.

We stopped by briefly to see the Cheetahs and Birds of prey at the animal sanctuary, had lunch there as well outside in the well maintained grounds. Even in the heat you can find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy lunch. Consistently good as always.
