Expert review of Spier Estate
As a local, I don’t get to wine estates very often except when entertaining friends from overseas or perhaps on a Saturday or Sunday outing, but Spier is the exception. When I was a student, it was the place to go to get rowdy on a Friday afternoon but my how things change. Now you’ll find a wide range of things to see and do here – from eateries and entertainment offerings to a cheetah experience (you’ll never forget this opportunity to stroke one of these magnificent felines), a wild raptor rehabilitation demonstration and a wonderful shop, Fringe Arts, selling South African only contemporary arts and crafts. There’s also a hotel (Spier Hotel) which is a great base for exploring the Winelands.
Eating and drinking
I’m a fan of Eight at Spier , the farm-to-table eatery that’s as stylish as it is pro sustainability and, though on-site dining destination Moyo is somewhat Afro-Disney like, it’s a memorable all African entertainment experience.
