A Wine Lover’s Ultimate Travel Guide to Cape Town

As a wine lover, we understand the almost impossible task of having to choose which vineyard to visit and which wine tastings to attend.

With so many options available, it can be very daunting selecting which farms and tastings are worth your time and finely-tuned wine critiquing abilities. So, we’ve put together a guide to help you on your wine-centered Cape Town adventure:

The Spier Wine Farm 

Based in the Stellenbosch Winelands, one of South Africa’s oldest vineyards, Spier, offers guests a beautiful farm style experience. 

The Spier Wine Farm has three tasting menus which vary in price and offer guests different experiences. You even have the option of pairing your tastings with olive, cheese or cured meat boards.

You could also pair your wine tasting with one of Spier’s innovative meals created with natural and organic ingredients sourced from nearby farmers.

If you’re looking for a stunning view and a relaxed setting, then we highly recommend a visit to The Spier Wine Farm.

Durbanville Hills
