Spier must be one of the most popular wine estates in the Cape Winelands by far due to their diverse offer to visitors. This ranges from the traditional wine tastings to outstanding restaurants and things like Segway Tours, combining traditional wine estate activities with historic and modern aspects and throwing in a bit of adventure. This is part one of two posts showing off some of the sights to be seen when visiting Spier.
Like every wine estate the focus is on... the wine of cause. The main building houses the wine tasting, wine sales as well the booking office for the different activities. Obviously all their awards are on display around here as well. Wouldn't have it any other way.
The lawns around the little lake with its fountain is a stunning area with a lot of visitors and families just relaxing around here. Spier does picnic baskets which can be enjoyed on the lawns while during our visit there was a group doing their wine tasting outside as well.
One of the historic attractions on the estate is the old slave bell. Just a pity it wasn't a sunny day with blue skies.
Disclosure: I visited Spier Wine Estate as guest of the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa during a fully hosted blogger tour of Cape Town. I received no additional remuneration to write this post and all views expressed are my own.
