Winelands at Spier Estate, Stellenbosch, Western Cape province, South Africa photo
Winelands at Spier Estate, Stellenbosch, Western Cape province

The Spier Estate, owned by Spier Wines, one of South Africa's most important wine producers, is in the heart of the premier wine producing region of Stellenbosch.

Spier's was founded in 1692by a German settler by the name of Arnout Janz.

The first grapes were pressed on the farm in 1712, and today one of the Cape's oldest wine cellar buildings, dated 1767, still takes pride of place on the estate.
