Spier’s Winemaker Dinner: A Fabulous Food and Wine Experience

Foodies, wine lovers and art enthusiasts should book immediately for one of Spier’s Winemaker Dinners. These intimate pop-up dining events are being hosted at the famous wine estate in Stellenbosch, offering the opportunity to discover the heritage of Spier winemaking (going back 331 years) with in-person insights from the winemakers. Unlike a typical à la carte menu, these food and wine pairing dinner asks you to cede all control; instead placing yourself in the hands of highly accomplished chefs.

The series promises an unforgettable journey through Spier’s award-winning wine collection, paired with four courses. Guests will have the unique opportunity to hear directly from Spier Cellar Master Johan Jordaan and featured guest winemakers, including Spier Managing Director (and award-winning winemaker) Frans K. Smit, as well as from acclaimed regenerative farmer Angus McIntosh.

Go Big, Go Magnum

Magnums, highly regarded as the ultimate symbol of celebration, are particularly valued by winemakers for their ability to create optimal ageing conditions and encourage a slower, more harmonious maturation process for the wine. Join Cellar Master Johan Jordaan as he shares a range of older vintages from some of our top ranges, including Creative Block and 21 Gables. The generous pours will be complemented by a feast of bountiful platters, including succulent crispy porchetta and roasted garden vegetable platters (hand-picked straight from the Spier Food Garden).
