With a recorded history dating back to 1692, Spier is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa.
As custodians of this impressive heritage, caring for their land and the surrounding environment is at the very heart of everything they do. Spier is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and is committed to re-establishing the rare plant life of their lands.
This investment in terroir not only ensures the sustainability of surrounding areas, but guarantees that they get the best grapes from each vineyard block.
According to winemaker Frans Smit, “Top quality grapes from prime vineyards are the essential building blocks for premium wine, and expressing the very best from the South African terroir”. His philosophy is to get the most out of each grape with as little interference as possible.
