We didn't actually try the wine here but the tasting room looked amazing - very stylish. We would recommend the walk - you might need one after all the food and wine you will be consuming in Franschoek! Its about 5km long and takes about 2 hours as it goes up into the hills behind the vineyard, great views and the opportunity to see some plant and animal life.

Cost is R50 per person but they send you off with a great info leaflet and map and a bottle of water. We really enjoyed it!

We didn't feel warmly welcomed here, and were not impressed with our tasting. It was a lovely setting and building, though.

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.

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