Spier Wine Farm Stellenbosch  South Africa
Spier Wine Farm
With its wine cellar dating as far back as 1767, Spier is one of the oldest and most well-known wineres in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Not only does this historic estate continue to receive accolads for it's wine, it has also become a hotspot for travelers because of its family-friendly atmosphere.

Visitors can easily spend anywhere from a couple hours to a whole day enjoying all of the activities Spier has on offer. The werf (or farmyard) is set along the banks of the Eerste River. There is beautiful farm-to-table restaurant called Eight on the premisis, however, I recommend ordering the picnic basket (especilly for families as there is a special children's basket available) from the Spier Farm Kitchen. The picnics are best enjoyed on the lawn overlooking the boulders and weeping willows along nearby riverbank. After lunch, let the kids burn off some energy at the outdoor playground or go on one of the self-guided walking tours of the property.

Beyond the fine wine and dining experiences at Spier, the Eagle Encounter program is something very unique to this estate. Here, you can learn about how the program takes in wounded birds and rehabilitates them. Afterwards, they are released to surrounding vineyards who use organic farming methods and are looking for help with natural pest control.

For a truly one-of-a-kind experience, book one of Spier's Segway tours. During the evening tour, you'll head into the vineyard and whizz past the vines in your battery-powered two-wheeled vehicle leading up to a relaxed outdoor tasting among the vines as the sun sets on another fantastic day in the Cape Winelands.
