Beautiful setting with restaurant, gift shop, tasting room and cellars. Since when we visited it was harvest time, we enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of the whole wine making process. Our La Motte guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Of the 7+ vineyards we toured...More

South Africa produces very good wines. But what sets Franschhoek above, say, California, is the beauty of its wine estates. La Motte is truly an estate, with a stately entrance road, buildings in Dutch colonial style, a tasting area in contemporary design, a stylish gift...More

The La Motte wine tasting is very reasonably priced ando you get to taste very good quality wines. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Very pretty grounds. Definitely worth a visit.

We went for the wine and food tasting experience which was brilliant. I learnt so much from Lilian who was taking the tasting. The La Motte wines are delicious and the place is beautiful. Well worth the visit.
