As summer swings on, a picnic adventure definitely deserves space on your bucket list. Set to be one of the summer’s top picks, Spier Wine farm’s new spot will no doubt be a local favourite.
There are two key ingredients that make for the perfect picnic: natural beauty, and a variety of delicious food choices. At Spier’s historic wine farm, both just so happen to be in abundance.
Picnic-spotters are now able to enjoy the new Riverside picnic area – a serene spot with panoramic views of the Helderberg and soothing sounds of the meandering Eerste River. Nestled amongst big granite boulders alongside the dam, the spot’s ideal for soaking up the sun while devouring a deliciously fresh summer picnic and of course Spier’s award-winning wines.

Parents can even head over to the werf, which is situated next to the Elemental Play Garden where their little ones can play.
