This winter, switch off to reconnect at Spier Hotel


24 May 2021  -  Spier Wine Farm

Every year, winter invites us to slow down and tune in to the naturally quieter time. This year, we need that gentle pause more than ever. Let’s face it, we’re Zoom’ed out, virtually frazzled, and missing that sense of whole-hearted connection to our loved ones.

Many of us are thinking more about taking a digital detox.  And, it’s not just for us as the always-on adults, we know our kids need a good break from screen time too.  If you haven’t tried it before, this is the time to switch off. It’s easier than you imagine.

Spier is offering a leisurely winter getaway, where you’ll be so happy to deliberately turn off your devices and take a deep breath. Relax in the graciousness of our village-style hotel.  Savour the provenance of farm-fresh foods and delicious wines.  Take a farm meander or a vineyard cycle in the crisp, clean country air. Read a book under an old oak tree and play together on smooth green lawns. Watch the sunset with a glass of red wine on the banks of the Eerste River.

Curl up at the cosy fireside to chat, to doodle in your journal or write postcards to friends. Make your fond memories on film with a complimentary disposable camera. Discover that when you switch off, you’re a world away, relishing the goodness of reconnecting with everything that truly matters in life.

To ease you into the joys of being offline, on arrival you will receive a bottle of Spier Signature Pinotage and your Winter Switch Off kit, which doubles as your phone safe, and includes:

• A journal and pencil
• A disposable film camera to capture special moments
• A Signature wine-tasting voucher
• An old-fashioned postcard to send to a friend or family

Let us know you’re joining the movement to switch off this winter by using the promo code RECONNECT when you book directly on spier.co.za

The offer is valid from 14 May until 30 September 2021 and applies to any package or rate.

Book your stay now, and then all that’s left to do is switch off.  You know you want to.
