Meet at Spier this Winter

You work hard and you get things done, but sometimes you just need a change of scenery to shift your thinking and hone your focus.

Visit Spier, ranked within the top 100 vineyards in the world, and let that fresh farm air help you forget all of your office stress. Situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, Spier feels far away enough to find freedom on the farm, but close enough to Cape Town International Airport – only 20 minutes’ drive – to keep you connected. Host an intimate meeting or presentation, sharpen team dynamics through outdoor activities, or simply savour our seasonal food and award-winning wines.

Accommodating your business needs
Spier provides multiple venues to accommodate your meeting requirements, whether that’s an important business gathering, a training workshop, or a private strategy session. Our historic Manor House, for example, built in 1822, is the perfect destination for any season with three meeting rooms, a warming fireplace, and a shaded courtyard. It’s suitable for groups of up to 18. Half-day packages are available from R575. Click here to view all our meeting rooms available.

Spend the night
Spier Hotel offers 80 bedrooms clustered around six private courtyards. Every spacious room has a fireplace, a big comfortable bed, and is adorned with local art. Guests receive a complimentary glass of wine when they check in, and a bottle of wine in their room on arrival. Accommodation rates are available from R1860, including breakfast. To enquire, email groups@spier.co.za

Something to eat
Whether you’re after breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack in between, Spier has the freshest farm ingredients and seasonally inspired menus to satiate your taste buds. Choose the Hotel Restaurant for contemporary country cuisine or a spot at the wine bar to meditate on farm life. Grab your ready-to-eat favourites from the Farm Café or create your own picnic basket to enjoy in the winter sunshine. Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery offers a casual ambience with a keen focus on ethically sourced and healthily prepared food.

Activities for everyone
Gather up the team and get ready for a day of action. Start with a brisk wintry walk around the farm. You may want to add an audio-guided tour to learn about Spier’s art collection, its 300 years of winemaking heritage or its sustainable farming practices. Feeling competitive? Lace up your running shoes and see who can record the best time on our 5km or 10km trails. Get on your bright yellow Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycles to explore the farm together. Don’t fancy working up a sweat? Choose a Segway Vineyard Tour – a two-wheeled, battery-powered ride to whizz around the winelands. To view all the things to do at Spier, click here.

Travel with a purpose
Hosting your event at Spier will be an unforgettable experience for you and your team, while also supporting Spier’s Growing for Good initiatives, which empower local communities to make positive social and environmental change. With Time for Good, we invite hotel guests to get hands-on by planting trees, greening their thumbs in Spier Food Garden, or preparing winter soup for the community. Whatever you choose, make it meaningful and memorable. To find out more, click here.

Make it a family affair
While you may have work to do, it doesn’t mean the family has to stay at home. Bring them along. There are plenty of activities to keep the kids busy, not least the Kids’ Clubhouse, which provides constant adult supervision and a variety of developmentally-appropriate activities for ages 3 to 12. From crafts, walking tours and storytime, the little ones won’t want to leave. Spier has your partner covered too. Spa treatments, wine tastings, farm walks or curling up with a book beside the fire – they might not even notice you’re working.
