Recommended by some fellow golfers and they where spot on. We first had a walk round the grounds and museum/art gallery and then the wine tasting. A very knowledgeable young man served us with 7 wines all of which we enjoyed. We then had lunch in the restaurant and the food and service not forgetting the bottle of wine were... More

Just loved all the wine vats in the cellar and the way they did the lay-out with different displays in every row. There is ambient lighting and the room is refreshingly cool ! Outside the cellar there is a wonderful area with many tables and chairs where you can experience the great variety of wines.

The tasting was very informative and really enjoyable and although it was a busy day we were not rushed which certainly added to the enjoyment... More

What a lovely place to taste the wines of La Motte. Informative, quick service and cosy in front of a roaring log fire. Nice wines too!

I lobe La Motte. Not only is the estate in one of the most picturesque villages near Cape Town (45 mins away from the city centre) but they do excellent wine and have a fab restaurant as well. A visit to the gallery in the restored Cape Dutch style building is a must-outstanding South African art masters are in the... More
