“Beautiful Wine Estate with Romantic outside dining and more”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

I cannot believe as a Capetonian it has taken me this long to discover the La Motte estate. We are all familiar with their wines but little did I know just how beautiful the grounds were or how idealic the setting is for almost any occasion.
We were thrilled to happen upon the estate this month to enjoy the Franschhoek un-corked Festival.
The grounds are spectacular and there is no shortage of a romantic spot to sit and enjoy your wine.
We did a tasting and of course came away with a bottle of their Millenium. A gorgeous red.
Sadly La Motte don't rent out their premises for weddings as this would make the most perfect venue.
Romantic is the only word to describe La Motte.

“Amazing wines!”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

Beautiful winery. While all the wines were great we especially enjoyed the Shiraz Viognier. La Motte is a must to visit.
