Spier Wine Estate and Conference Venue
Spier is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa with a recorded history dating back to 1692. While rooted in this heritage, Spier has a vibrant and environmentally-conscious energy. Award-winning wine can be paired with fabulous food, grown either on the farm or by nearby farmers. The winery is highly acclaimed and the 4-star Spier Hotel and conference facilities offer inspiring Winelands getaways in the tranquility of nature.
The steering committee opted for a venue where both accommodation and conference can be provided at the same site. This formula, initiated in the 2nd TEAM meeting at Kolymbari, has proven to be advantageous for a stronger interaction between the delegates, higher attendance of the presentations, and logistic advantages.
Please note that we secured a total of 75 signature rooms per night, from 10 April to include the night of 13 April 2016 (daily breakfast included). Delegates are advised to make their reservations through us at their earliest convenience to avoid missing out on the specially negotiated rates. All unsold rooms will be released on 10 January 2016, when delegates may need to compete with the general public for availability. The registration form will require you to indicate your preferred arrival and departure dates, as well as selecting your preferred room type. An invoice with the banking detail will be sent to you for payment before 10 January 2016. The registration form does allow for guests to extend their stay at Spier Hotel.
It is recommended that delegates stay at Spier Estate out of convenience. Should delegates wish to book their own accommodation in Stellenbosch Centre or elsewhere, they can find information at www.stellenbosch.travel .
Please take into consideration that the Spier Estate is located 10 km from Stellenbosch Centre and that there is no public transport between the two sites. Delegates will have to arrange their own transport if not staying at Spier Estate.
Accommodation in the Village-style buildings, lush green lawns and spacious rooms situated next to the calming Eerste River are the defining characteristics of the 4-star Spier Hotel. Its rooms are clustered around six courtyards, each with its own swimming pool. Gardens and walkways connect the rooms with the reception area, lounge, bar, terrace and restaurant. Renowned as a pioneer in responsible tourism, the hotel has numerous accreditations. Find out more about Spier Wine Estate.
