Lonely Planet review for Spier
There’s something for everyone at this mega-estate, a major sponsor of the arts, which offers golf, horse riding, a cheetah-conservation project, a performing-arts centre, beautifully restored Cape Dutch buildings and several restaurants, including the spectacular if somewhat cheesy African-themed Moyo. Its wines have improved over the years, and in the tasting room you can try lots of other vineyards’ wines. There’s also a good hotel, the Village at Spier.
