The Spier Wine Experience

Savour the best of the Cape Winelands — right in the heart of Gauteng!

The Spier Wine Experience at the Indaba Hotel is a beguiling piece of the Cape Winelands right in the heart of Gauteng. The space will offer a comprehensive array of acclaimed Spier wines as well as delicious snack boards.

This is the ideal place to sample, sip and savour this historic Stellenbosch farm's wines. Friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to walk you through Spier's various ranges, each of which are available for you to savour on-site or to purchase for enjoyment at home.

On warm days, unwind with a glass of wine on the shade-dappled stoep, where you are surrounded by the Indaba Hotel's lush and tranquil garden. It's so relaxing that you'll find it hard to believe that Sandton's bustle is a mere 20 minutes away.

In addition to being open to the public from Wednesday to Sunday (10H00-19H00), the space will also host launches, Spier Wine Club events, Special Celebrations and blending evenings. The tasting room is also available for corporate and private functions.

For groups of eight or more, a reservation is required. Please ensure that bookings are made and confirmed at least 24 hours in advance.

Wine Range at the Tasting Room

FRANS K. SMIT
These limited edition, complex, nuanced blends are named after our accomplished Cellar Master. A tribute to Frans Smit's great love of wine, his winemaking skill and his dedication to the process.

SPIER 21 GABLES
Our wine farm has 21 architecturally significant gables, the most on any South African wine farm - all meticulously restored. These passionately crafted, award-winning wines are named in honour of our gables.

CREATIVE BLOCK
Spier Creative Block wines are a South African take on traditional Rhône- and Bordeauxstyle blends. Our winemakers carefully select grapes from different vineyard blocks, combining and blending taste profiles to create wines that are much greater than the sum of their parts. Having won many accolades both at home and abroad since its launch in 2009, this is Spier's most awarded range of blends, enjoyed by discerning drinkers around the world. The Spier Creative Block range of blends takes its name from a Spier Arts project proudly supporting South African artists.

SEAWARD
Seaward grapes are selected from South Africa's top coastal areas, growing in a narrow band close to the cold Atlantic ocean and the temperate waters of False Bay. Such terroir provides what you might call a perfect storm - with barely any human intervention needed to produce outstanding harvests for our winemakers, every year.

SPIER 5.5%
The Spier 5.5% range takes its name after the alcohol percentage of the wines. Light, fruity, and full of flavour and complexity, they both contain less than 50% of the alcohol and kilojoules compared to a 13.5% alcohol table wine.

CAP CLASSIQUE
Spier's Cap Classique wines are crafted the traditional French way and fermented in the bottle. These elegant and sophisticated bubblies are richly expressive of varietal, vintage, and terroir: a must for celebrations big and small.

SECRET SPARKLING
This sparkling is a Secret made for sharing. Served in a gorgeous, eye-catching bottle, it is perfect for fun- and sunshine-filled daytime occasions with the ladies. The sparkling wine's fresh berry aromas are complemented by a fruit-driven palate and an attractive peach-pink colour.

SIGNATURE COLLECTION
Spier Signature wines are the hallmark of our winemaking style; consistently delivering the character expression of each grape variety. Spier Signature wines capture in a glass what Spier does best: making quality wines that are true to each grape variety's unique flavour. Every time.

CANNED WINES
Spier's premium canned wines are expertly crafted by acclaimed Cellar Master Frans Smit and his team. Perfect for enjoying while out and about, quick to chill, light to carry and easy to pack. Excellent for the outdoors without the risk of broken glass. These aluminium cans are also infinitely recyclable and have a smaller carbon footprint than glass bottles. The single serve (250ml) is ideal to share and allows you to try more than one varietal without having to open a bottle each time.
