The Spier Wine Experience at the Indaba Hotel Tasting Room in Fourways, Johannesburg launched on 21 October. A beguiling piece of the Cape Winelands right in the heart of Gauteng, the space offers a comprehensive array of acclaimed Spier wines as well as delicious snack boards.
The venue is the ideal place to sample, sip and savour this historic Stellenbosch farm’s wines — whether you’re completely new to them, or are a loyal fan. Friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to walk you through Spier’s various ranges, each of which are available for you to savour on-site or to purchase for enjoyment at home.
Order a set tasting, or wine by the glass. Feeling peckish? There are a variety of olive, cheese and cured meat boards.
“On warm days, we invite you to unwind with a glass of wine on our shade-dappled stoep, where you’ll be surrounded by the Indaba Hotel’s lush and tranquil garden. It’s so relaxing that you’ll find it hard to believe that Sandton’s bustle is a mere 20 minutes away!” says Luyolo Ngcwabe, the Tasting Room manager.
- Signature Tasting: Choose three Signature wines (Spier’s range of easy going and accessible wines) and one from each of the three premium wine ranges: 21 Gables, Creative Block and Seaward
- Winemaker’s Selection: Delve deep into Stellenbosch’s winemaking history with Spier’s 21 Gables (its acclaimed range of single varietals), the Creative Block range of brilliant blends, and the organic red blend, Spier First Stone
- Chocolate and wine tasting: Inspired by our Spier Cap Classique and our Spier Creative Block blends, a top Cape chocolatier has hand-crafted three chocolates that complement and unlock the flavours in each sip of wine
The Spier Wine Experience will be at the Indaba Hotel Tasting Room for three years. In addition to being open to the public daily, the space will also host launches, Spier Wine Club events and blending evenings. The tasting room is also available for corporate and private functions.
