Walk the Spier Farm: Hotel
Welcome to this audio tour of Spier. This is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa — its recorded history dates back to 1692. I'm Mariota Enthoven, a member of the family that bought Spier in 1993. I've been living with my husband, Angus McIntosh, and three children here since 2007.
If the hotel's entrance is behind you, turn right and walk along the walkway, keeping the building on your right.
While you walk, let me briefly explain how VoiceMap works.
It uses your location to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. This means that you can put your phone away now. Don't worry if I'm silent for a while, when I'm not giving directions or telling stories. There's a map on your screen if you ever feel lost, and if you do get way off track without noticing, VoiceMap will let you know.
Over the next hour, I'll be showing you the many facets of Spier: from art and wines to hospitality and heritage.
