“As a farm with a proud winemaking history of more than 300 years, we feel it’s important to reconnect people with their own rich food heritage,” Spier’s Cellar Master, Frans Smit, says. “Food is a powerful way of celebrating culture, and keeping it alive. It gives us a profound understanding of who we are and where we come from.”
