Spier Tasting Room’s spring pairing celebrates the season with tasting portions made with ingredients sourced from their farm as well as nearby, trusted producers.
The wine tasting experience offers award-winning Spier wine paired with innovative food offerings. The stylish venue, on the banks of the popular Spier dam, has stunning views of the Helderberg Mountains.
A magnificent chandelier – made by renowned artists Heath Nash from 334 recycled Spier wine bottles and weighing 370kgs – hangs above the state-of-the-art tasting counter. A collection of new and recycled furniture in wood – including John Vogel’s Nguni chairs and parquet tables by Allan Lutge – provide seated tasting arrangements for guests.
Some of the tastings to choose from: Spier Méthod Cap Classique paired with a dried apple shortbread cube, 21 Gables Chenin Blanc 2015 paired with a beetroot, couscous and feta salad, Chilled Signature Pinotage 2016 paired with Farmer Angus chicken liver pate and roasted smoky bacon bits, Chilled Creative Block 3 2014 paired with N’Duja (Farmer Angus Spreadable Salami) and crackers, a chocolate and wine pairing of Spier’s Méthod Cap Classique and the Creative Block range, or a tasting of the two premium wine ranges plus Spier’s flagship wine, Frans K Smit, amongst other offerings.
