Partner content: Embrace the chill at Spier this winter

Supplied by Spier

What’s not to love about winter? Brisk walks, followed by comforting meals, glorious red wine, good books and fun board games with the family – all while the fire crackles alongside you. Enjoy these activities, and more, at Spier Wine Farm with their July winter specials.

Toast the chilly season with the Chef’s Winter Dinner

Winter is the season of culinary delights and Spier has the perfect plan to make this happen. Their Chef’s Winter Dinners feature a three-course menu of fresh and wholesome food, harmoniously inspired by the seasonal produce available on the farm. The meal includes a glass of wine from the Seaward range. There’s also a special kiddies’ menu for the little ones. Available daily from 18h30. R385 per person. To book, email

Sip on superb soup at the Farm Café

We’ve heard that chicken soup is good for the soul, but we think any soup from Chef Hennie at the Farm Café will do wonders for body and mind. Whether it’s a farm favourite such as roast tomato or butternut soup, or something else entirely, every nutritious soup is made from the freshest seasonal ingredients harvested from Spier Food Garden. Enjoy the soup of the day with farm-fresh butter and warm Vadas sourdough bread for R65.

Savour the Seaward Sip & Soup tasting

Wine and soup are the perfect winter pairing, so it makes perfect sense to combine the two! Our Seaward Sip & Soup tasting is all about sampling award-winning wines that have been expertly paired with comforting yet complex soups. The tasting is available at Spier Tasting Room for R150 per person and includes:

  • Seaward Sauvignon Blanc 2021 with white bean velouté
  • Seaward Chardonnay 2019 with carrot and citrus soup
  • Seaward Shiraz 2020 with spicy lentil soup
  • Seaward Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 with earthy mushroom broth
