Our visit to this winery really was an outstanding experience on a beautiful day. The surroundings and grounds at La Motte are gorgeous. The tasting room is very inviting. Our wine tasting experience was most enjoyable. The young lady who delivered our wine tastings was very friendly and gave knowledgeable descriptions of each tasting. There was a lovely plate of...

This was a fabulous day experience, from the spectacular estate grounds to an informative museum visit. La motte offers an sumptuous lunch in the Piernief Resturant or an option of a delightful lighter menu under the leafy shade of the garden. There is a fabulous wine tasting room that looks onto the impressive cellar boasting world class wines. La Motte... More

Classy place in beautiful surroundings. Wine pairings were a delight. Nicely explained & very well presented. This review is simply for the wine tasting- the restaurant is separate. The great thing about these wonderful wine farms is that they are so close to each other & you're spoilt for choice. But this one has to be in your top 5... More

We had lunch at the resturant. Wow an amazing experience. The food looked like something out of a food magazine and the taste was better then the appearance. Extremely reasonably priced for the value you receive. A must if you in Franchoek.

Very good wines and tutored tastings. Although you pay for the tastings (5 wines) you get the money back if you buy just one bottle... Which you surely will after the tastings as the wines are delicious.

The food at La Motte was amazing. I would recommend sitting outside so you can really take in the scenery. Portions aren't very big, but the food is quite tasty.

Photographer's paradise. Some really good red wines, a museum, art works and a beautiful setting. A mountain backdrop sets it all off.

The tasting room is welcoming with a comfortable seated area and beautifully designed setting. Excellent choice of wines, well presented and with water, superior bread roll & napkin provided. The charge is very modest and is refunded with purchase (no problem there!). Some wineries in the valley make a charge, regardless of purchase and not always with wines of this... More

My wife and I visited La Motte Wine Estate on our 33rd wedding anniversary and truly enjoyed the experience. The venue is five star and the wine tasting was second to none. I particular enjoyed the reds on offer and walked away with a boot full for my cellar.

The La Motte winery is beautiful! As soon as we parked we admired the vines, and the beautiful Cape dutch architecture of the buildings. The tasting room looked like the lobby of a top hotel, and as it was raining outside, we settled next to the open log Fire for our tasting. The assistant was really knowledgeable and told us...
