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.

Conferences here for a wekk and loved the whole eco-friendly self sustainable thread - even you loo water is recycled back to the gardens- recycled paper and pen at each session. My only suggestion would be that when you are there for a week the salads should be varied as the same thing gets a little much. Otherwise liked the lite lunches which kept you awake in the afternoon sessions.
Well done

We recently attended a Cuban Dance show at the amphitheatre on the Spier Wine Estate and I was pleasantly surprised. Well organised, secure parking, spacious theatre with several security guards and plenty of refreshments available outside to purchase. We had a great time- just remember to take something warm- even in summer. I will definitely keep an eye on their future shows from now on.

Great day out only 45 mins from Cape Town. Estate free to enter, but small entrance fees for the Bird of prey centre and the Cheetah park. Went round the cheetah park and bird centre. Got close to the aminals and birds, handling of them was available at a cost. Was very informative. Wine tasting available and picnics can be bought on site to eat in the beautiful gardens. Moya restaurant was very authentic and there was lots of tree huts there to wine and dine in. The gift shop has quality goods on sale. There is a hotel on site also,

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.
