Stellenbosch Wine Route

To see

    Spier Wine Farm

    WedgeView Country House & Spa is only a 5 min drive to the famous Spier Wine Farm, where you can enjoy the many different activities available. The Spier Art Collection is one of the largest contemporary South African art collections.

    The Vineyard Segway Tour is very popular and the Eagle Encounters is also worth a visit. Eagle Encounters has been going strong since 2001, rehabilitating and releasing birds of prey, promoting conservation and education, on land donated by Spier. Birds of prey keep the farm’s ecosystem in balance, making it possible to naturally control pests, without pesticides.

    Enjoy a lovely picnic at Spier Wine Farm or visit Vadas Smokehouse and Bakery where families and friends can join together and eat food that is carefully, ethically and healthily sourced and prepared.
