We went to LaMotte to celebrate my brother -in-law's birthday. The estate is absolutely stunning. For lunch we were seated outside on the patio - we had a beautiful view of the pond and the garden. The wines we chose since it was a hot summer's day were the La Motte Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc - both were crisp and... More

The property is gorgeous with a wonderful set up of museum, shop, cafe and wine tasting. Wonderful commentary on all the wines with a bread roll and water which was perfect.

This was our second visit for lunch at La Motte - the Food and Environment are excellent - but this time we were seated outside - on reflection, we prefer inside the Restaurant as the decor is great. Also the Service was very long

This was the highlight of our recent Frranschoek visit... the most amazing experience of learning how to pair your wine with different tastes...

On a day trip to the Franschhoek area we settled on La Motte as a wine tasting and lunch destination. The restaurant looks out onto a lovely garden and stream which is the perfect backdrop for lunch on a sunny day. The food was beautifully presented and delicious, served by smiling and professional staff. The wine tasting was of the... More

Knowledge, accompanying and professional wine tasting. You can walk around in the barrel cellar and get a real feel of one of the biggest and most successful wineries in South Africa. Nice cafe and hang out facilities surrounding the wine tasting and area.

Absolutely incredible wine farm! The grounds are impeccably kept and the wine is amazing too. Lovely other little touches including top restaurant, museum, farm shop and walks. Start with a wine tasting and then make your away around the property.

We travelled from Cape Town to visit, hike and enjoy dinner. Big mistake. We got there just after 2pm so no hiking. The lunch was a cheese platter (very nice) because too late for lunch (restaurant closes at 3pm) and dinner at the restaurant (a hefty 895 rand with wine per person) was a 'no go' as we had not...

We booked (essential) for a Friday morning food & wine tasting at LaMotte. The event is held on the covered stoep of the Pierneef restaurant and it is sheer excellence from the minute you enter the grounds. Friendly, helpful personnel at the gate, at reception, inside the restaurant, and Liliian, who hosted our tasting and greeted each of us with... More
