Although I've been to Franschoek on many occasions, this was my first visit to La Motte Wine Estate. Like so many of the Cape Wine Estates, La Motte is spectacular. The estate has been in the Rupert family since 1970 & they run a class act here. The indoor wine tasting facilities are more on the formal side so I... More

We stopped here for some wine tasting and left with much more. The service was very polite and professional. The atmosphere is fantastic with part of the wine storage process on view. There are plenty of tasting tables so you can enjoy as a group. I particularly liked how they served you two glasses of wine at a time +... More

We met friends for lunch and the menu was excellent, staff were very helpful and swift service. The staff were attentive when required and not obtrusive. The food was beautifully cooked and the wine selection top rate. The great thing was that the place is not huge, so you got the feel of personal involvement and not being part of... More

The estate, like many in Franschhoek, is simply beautiful. The tasting area is similarly spectacular with many large wooden tables and glass doors. However, the service was rather disorganized. My wife and I waited quite some time before receiving the next round in the tasting menu. The service gave the impression that the estate was unfamiliar with large crowds. Other... More

We arrived at La Motte half an hour before closing time, and we headed to the Pierneef Exhibition. Whilst reading the history on the display boards at the entrance a kind lady, who turned out to be the curator, approached us from her desk and offered to give us a summary of the farm's history. Despite the late hour she... More

We enjoyed our stop at La Motte during our private wine tour with Tsiba Tsiba. The winery was very busy when we were there, but we were still able to sit at a table and have a nice experience. There is also a small shop filled with beautiful objects for the home.

This was my favorite place in all of Franschhoek. The grounds are fabulous, with a babbling brook that runs through it. The MCC was very tasty and the lunch was incredibly good. Plus, there was an art museum to go along with it! The art was by an artist named Pierneef, with whom I was not familiar, but his landscapes... More
