Easter at Spier Wine Estate

This Easter, head to Spier for the ultimate family-friendly getaway. On Easter Sunday, the kids can roam the farm looking for a fun Easter prize. Find an Easter Bunny clue in five different locations and collect stickers as you go. Once the map has been completed with all five stickers, it can be exchanged for a parcel containing delectable Easter treats. Adults, meanwhile, can sample Spier's award-winning wines at various wine tasting stations along the route. The entire family can then gather under an ancient oak tree for a hearty picnic and an Easter surprise. Moreover, throughout the Easter weekend, join Spier for a wine tasting while the kids get creative with a free cookie decorating session. It's fun to decorate and delicious to eat.
