Had a tasting menu for dinner with wine pairing and it was just impecable. No faults at all. The food is wonderful (as a student chef, this was amazing to me), the atmosphere was of top quality, the staff know what they are doing, it was just perfect. The money is worth it! When they did breakfast a few years... More

I had booked the restaurant for lunch for me and my wife, and then decided to add on a wine tour and tasting pre-lunch. I'm very pleased that I did. The vineyard, including the gardens and the buildings are delightful with a real sense of history and quality. We were met at the winery reception by our guide. I have... More

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
