Great visit in stunning surroundings. Don't miss the tasting room with a walk among the wine casks and views of private rooms. Cheeseboard lunch highly recommended. Looking forward to enjoying delivery of la motte wine when I arrive back home!

Absolutely beautiful estate yet, the highlight of our visit was the wine. La Motte wine is by far one of my favourite wines. Definitely worth a visit.

My husband and I went there for lunch and had a really nice cheese platter and wine. We then went to the wine tasting which was excellent with lots of help choosing the wine. I would recommend this vineyard. There is also a Picture Gallery.

We tried their standard wine tasting which was very inexpensive. Quality of the wines was ok, but nothing special or noteworthy

This is the nicest setting for wine tastings ever. Tried 4 red and 4 whites and they we’re fabulous. It is hard to choose where to visit when in Franschhoek as there so many excellent vineyards, but this one is a must

The first thing that struck me at La Motte was how incredibly beautiful the grounds are. It was our first vineyard in South Africa and I was very impressed with how well presented the gardens and then the tasting room were. It's very sophisticated. We...More
