Spier Wine Estate, Stellenbosch, Western Cape

Spier Wine Estate, Stellenbosch, Western Cape

Spier is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa with a recorded history dating back to 1692. While rooted in this heritage, Spier has a vibrant and conscious energy, home to one of the largest collections of contemporary South African art.

Spier’s wines are among the most awarded in South Africa. Visitors to the Stellenbosch-based farm can enjoy these paired with wholesome delicious food – made with ingredients sourced either from the farm or trusted, nearby farmers. The Spier Hotel and meeting facilities offer inspiring Winelands getaways in the tranquility of nature.

At Spier we believe we can make a difference through learning. We invest in Growing for Good – a range of learning initiatives that empower staff and communities to make a positive social and environmental change. These include the Tree-preneurs project, which encourages people in impoverished communities to grow trees in exchange for essential goods. A number of programmes also offer young people work experience, training, and mentorship in hospitality, agriculture, wine, and art.

Sustainability is woven through every aspect of our business. On our organically-certified farm, free-roaming livestock and chickens are reared in pastures without the use of antibiotics or hormones, while fruit and vegetables are grown without artificial fertiliser or pesticides. Extensive tracts of alien vegetation have been removed, and more than a million indigenous plants replanted. 100% of black- and grey-water and more than 98% of solid waste is recycled. Our water conservation and boosting of biodiversity saw Spier recognised as one of 38 WWF Conservation Champions.

Spier has also been recognised by various other external organisations – including Fair Trade in Tourism (FTTSA) and the Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association (WIETA). We also received gold at the African Responsible Tourism Awards 2016 in the category of Best for Accommodation for Responsible Employment. Our winery has FSSC 22000 certification, is Fair Trade accredited, organically certified and follows the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) criteria.
