Sponsored: Do yourself and the environment a favour with Spier’s Signature range

Whether it’s curling your toes in front of the fire, accompanied by a good book and a glass of oh-so-smooth Merlot, enjoying beach sundowners with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, lazing on the lawns with a dreamy, creamy Chardonnay, or taking in the endless view of the bay with a Cabernet in hand, Spier has something for everyone. Made with care for the planet and its people, there’s little wonder Spier’s wines are equally loved in return by South Africans from all walks of life. 


Spier Signature wines capture in a bottle what matters most to Spier — over 300 years of winemaking history, and a deep commitment to being good to the earth and to people. Through its Growing for Good initiatives and its commitment to long-term sustainability goals, Spier empowers communities to create positive social and environmental change. The farm recycles more than 98% of its solid waste, and its organic pastures is home to free-range chickens and cows, while organic vines complete its biodiverse farming operation.  It’s a way of doing business. “We ask ourselves at every decision whether we’re doing good – be it reducing waste, farming with future generations in mind, supporting the arts, leading with transparency or uplifting our surrounding communities and partners. It’s in considering the bigger picture that business becomes sustainable.” What’s more, when you support Spier’s Growing for Good approach, it won’t cost you the earth, so to speak, instead, you’ll be buying some of the best value-for-money wines on the market,” says Frans Smit, Spier Managing Director.

The Spier Signature Collection hails from the “home of Spier wine” – that’s the Spier wine farm in Stellenbosch, which is one of the oldest and most important wine farms in this internationally respected wine region. Did you know that Spier has the highest number of historic gables of any wine farm in the country?

Like its extraordinary winemaking history, Spier wines are extraordinary too – continually winning prestigious award after award both here and abroad. And that goes for the Signature range, too.

Not short on variety, the range is a good place to start if you’re just beginning your wine journey and you’re keen to explore your palate’s preferences. It’s equally good if you’re a seasoned wine drinker looking for an excellent option that delivers consistently  – in fact, it’s most likely you’ll already know and appreciate the award-winning wines that make up this wide range of nine different wines that you can drink anywhere, anytime.

There are seven single varietals and two blends in the Signature Collection: Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chardonnay/Pinot Noir, Merlot, Pinotage, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Shiraz. Each of these quality wines is crafted with the utmost care by Spier’s experienced winemaking team. Like the best of friends, they’re unpretentious, easy-going and enjoyable company any night of the week.

What these all have in common is an unwavering focus on quality; they might be easy-drinking and unpretentious, and they also happen to be excellent value for money, but they are undoubtedly well-crafted, everyday wines created with you in mind. “Good value. Good values.” – that truly sums it all up and is the collection’s unmistakable signature…
