This was the third out of six wineries we visited over two days. We went here before noon so not many people around. The tasting area is within a group of beautiful cape Dutch buildings. Each one is geared for an activity. They have a small museum about the winery (history and ownership), a small but nice art gallery, a... More

Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed a wine tasting at La Motte. We tasted seven excellent wines and bought a few bottles, so there was no charge. In our opinion, that was a very good deal. Our "leader" in the tasting was knowledgable and gave us plenty of time. We never felt hurried. Before and after the tasting, we enjoyed... More

Visited La Motte with German friends. The Pierneef art collection are absolute fantastic. Do not miss the gallery, while dining or wine tasting. The wine tasting was served very elegantly with 8 wines to taste. Great wines - though bit pricey. We got informed information about the wines and could walk around the barrels in the climate controlled cellar. The... More

Although I've been to Franschoek on many occasions, this was my first visit to La Motte Wine Estate. Like so many of the Cape Wine Estates, La Motte is spectacular. The estate has been in the Rupert family since 1970 & they run a class act here. The indoor wine tasting facilities are more on the formal side so I... More

We stopped here for some wine tasting and left with much more. The service was very polite and professional. The atmosphere is fantastic with part of the wine storage process on view. There are plenty of tasting tables so you can enjoy as a group. I particularly liked how they served you two glasses of wine at a time +... More
