This is Swartland – Terroir-driven wines that allow the vineyard to tell the tale. Crafted from the land and made by hand.

The new age of the Swartland commenced in 1997 when Charles Back stumbled across an old Tobacco farm, Klein Amoskuil. Bewildered by the quality of grapes in a region better known for its wheat and rolling fynbos hills, the potential was obvious, so Charles set forth to acquire the farm and study its soils and extreme climate. The result? Spice Route Winery was born, an award-winning winery with terroir at the heart of every crafted bottle.


The Spice Route Winery is indeed part of the extended Fairview family which is why we’ve decided to make this the digital home of Spice Route wines for the moment. A new, exciting digital destination that will be housing the full range of Fairview and Spice Route wines is on the way. Watch this space….
