About Spice Route Destination

Centuries ago, anyone with a desire to explore exotic flavours and experiences would have needed to wait for the seasonal return of the traders travelling the Spice Route.

Fortunately, these days a journey of discovery is right on your doorstep, with the modern-day Spice Route in Paarl – a sensory feast for today’s connoisseurs of craftsmanship and authenticity.

The Spice Route experience is a com- pletely unique concept for the wine and hospitality industry. A carefully curated selection of artisans showcase their produce and share their knowledge with both the public and each other. The collaborative environment allows for endless discoveries and a truly delectable journey.

“The vision for Spice Route is to offer local and international tourists a selection of hand-picked artisanal producers who put as much thought, skill and passion into their products as Spice Route Winemaker, Charl du Plessis, puts into his wines,” says Spice Route Wines Owner, Charles Back.

Only 40 minutes’ drive from the city and 800m from Fairview Wine and Cheese, Spice Route is the ultimate day-trip destination for the whole family.
