Got the last three seats on plane to Cape Town. Good old BA.
Arrive to blue skies. 20 min drive to meet Eve at Spier estate. Eve Jell has showed up for every London Vintage show for as long as I can remember. Every year she makes me promise to visit. And I promise. Then I break my promise. Spend too much time with the Aussies, I do. Anyway, I'm here.
It’s really grown. The Estate is almost back to its original impressive size; about 1,000 hectares. It’s the perfect place to stay for a wine holiday and has a small village of cool, spacious villas to stay in. Half an hour south is Cape Town. All the major wine estates are in easy reach.
