As the Spice Route Destination grows and evolves, new and exciting treasures and experiences are added and are waiting to be discovered.
The latest addition to the Spice Route family of ‘craft’ is The Trading Company – a quirky store that’s decor is an eclectic mix of old and new. The store fits in perfectly with the Spice Route philosophy and is making authentic, and hand crafted products even more accessible to the public.
The array of carefully selected bespoke home ware, exotic furniture, premium baby products, one of a kind jewelry, and notebooks, sold at the store, are a true celebration of local design. The store will primarily stock authentically handmade, limited edition pieces crafted by our very own local artists, and the small amount of Turkish and Indian products is a ‘must have’ treasure for the adventurous soul. Most of the products are made from natural and raw materials. All décor used in the store is also handmade locally, or up-cycled by local artists.
Celebrate local design with us and find the perfect gift for him or her, young and old at The Trading Company at Spice Route.The store will be open daily from 10am to 5pm.

Since 2009, Richard Bosman’s Quality Cured Meats has been producing exceptional Italian and Spanish style charcuterie using traditional methods of salting and drying. Special partnerships with selected farmers allow the small factory to source the very best pasture-reared animals, delivering superior quality and flavour to the meat. With a philosophy of interfering as little as possible with the meat, Bosman and his team rely on quality and time to make the magic happen. The meat is hand-salted, hung and cured for 2 – 12 months, resulting in delicious, artisanal fare that’s well worth the wait.

Monday - Sunday : 10:00-17:00

Foodie extraordinaire Brenda de Jager has always been inspired by food. Travels to gastronomic meccas like Morocco, Spain and Argentina further fuelled her love for all things edible, and in 2007 she finally turned her passion into a business. Starting out making jams, Brenda soon found that every new season brought on a quest for seasonal produce. Slowly but surely she increased her range of preservative- and additive-free products, and today her much-loved preserves come in a variety of flavours and forms. Fresh products, natural ingredients and unique combinations make the treats at Brenda’s Deli as distinct as they are delicious.

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.
