Commercial Winery Jun 12, 2011
I was invited as a +1 to Stellenbosch; about 30 minutes drive from Cape Town where my Mom’s company had a conference for the weekend. Spier (4 star hotel) is one of the many famous wine farms in the area, the hotel is build like a small village and walking distance from Moyo (Traditional African restaurant, conference facilities and wine tastings). The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are nice and the beds & linen was just great. As it was raining on arrival, i couldn't wait to go for a cat-nap while the rest of the group had their first meeting. There were no bar fridge, but they had coffee making facilities and a TV with limited channels in the room.

We did a wine tasting which was great; they have a wide selection of wines available which makes it easy for anyone to find a wine they’ll like. You can also buy wine from the winery directly at a discounted price. Other activities include horse riding, hiking, farm visits, spa, heritage walks and a craft market.

Spier have a shuttle that can take you to Stellenbosch, but we had a car and it’s about 10 minutes drive. Stellenbosch is famous for its oak trees, university, and leisure lifestyle with arts, music and theatrical atmosphere. They have great restaurants, wonderful antique shops and worth browsing the day away. There is also a train, but since we had the car I didn't try it.

The overall experience at Spier was nice, I’m sure tourists, especially first time visitors with limited time in the area will enjoy it very much. In my opinion it’s a bit too commercial, but maybe I’m just spoiled.

Will i stay there again... if there is another conference, yes, but if i have a choice to go back, probably not, think there are nicer and more exclusive wine lands to try.
