Going to Pierneef at La Motte is a given success. The elegance of the place, the atmosphere of the history, and the cultural influence, puts it in a class of its own. We are always like small children in awe of what we will see next. This time we went around the museum and that was a real treat. But... More

The Wine estate is nestled in the lovely surrounding wineyards. The wines are most delicious and the service is outstanding. We had a great experience here. Thank you very much!

Every course was a delight. Beautiful setting, excellent service. The Michelin Star reviewer needs to get here. Then there is the wine tasting before or after the restaurant

A good way to stretch the legs on a Monday morning. The walk starts at 8am and costs 100 rand. We were taken through the vineyards and up into the hills. After about 1 1/2 hours we stopped at a lapa where there was chilled champagne, orange juice and muffins before walking back down through the estate.

What a beautiful entrance, courtyard etc etc. And a tasting centre at the top of the range. We booked a private room for our group and the table was set as if for royalty. I would've given a 5/5 rating if it was not for our server who, although having a captive audience, told us NOTHING about the wine except... More

What an impressive wine farm - rich in history and culture. Beautifully refurbed a good few years ago, offering a lush tasting room, a restaurant par excellence, a remarkable gallery and so forth. One can also relax and order drinks under the trees and enjoy the magnificent La Motte way of life. Strongly recommended. Ideal for those who love art... More

Our second wine tasting in this gorgeous wine country was at La Motte. We elected to do lunch first, and we were seated immediately (our tour advisor, Cheryl Gould of Lion World Travel, made reservations prior to out trip). The setting was exquisite. Tasteful, modern, comfortable, as was the well informed and gentle service. The meal was outstanding, matched with... More

Stunning scene, great menu, fairly experimental, great wines, friendly staff. The food is exquisite and they put a twist on most dishes. They are very good at pairing the wines with each meal which is part of the fun. There is a great shop too for nick nacks.
