It's a nice view from here and the restaurant was pretty good. However, there are much better wine tasting places than spice route, which is more a tourist place than a vinery. The vine is also more average and overpriced, the staff doing the tasting is not really knowledgeable but repeat what they learned by heart.

We were disappointed in the Spice Route. We were there on a Tuesday and not much going on. Decided to have lunch at Barley and Biltong. The beer and milkshakes were very nice but we were disappointed in the food. We ordered the pulled pork burgers which did not impress. It was tasteless and servered with half a bag of... More

Great place to visit as there are so many different things to see and enjoy next to the vineyard. It is a visit well worthwhile. Suggest to obtain the passport and then just relax with the tastings available. The beer tasting was superb!!

We picked Chris and Penny up and were a bit early to go to lunch at Backsberg, so we decided to stop in at Spice Route destination. We first went and looked at the glass and saw nothing there that we wanted. We decided that we were thirsty, and they were quite happy to serve us just coffee, so we... More

This one has it all, coffee roastery, brewery, distillery, chocolate factory, cured meats, glass blowing all on top of excellent wines and two top notch restaurants. One can make a day of this, but budget for it, everything is very tempting.

Lots to do for all on this wine farm. Lovely food, but book a table for lunch as the restaurant gets very busy. Tasting of various products from chocolate to beer. Glass making factory, gift shop. Lovely views. Great for family outing.

Pretty because of the location. Very busy so expect to wait & not great service. Overrated ice cream.

Sometimes time is of the essence, and if you don't have much time in CT this is one spot where you can spend the day and feel like it was well worth while. On arrival we found the car park full and thought "oh no, we've made the wrong choice", BUT, once you get onto the grounds you realize the... More
