Absolutely incredible wine farm! The grounds are impeccably kept and the wine is amazing too. Lovely other little touches including top restaurant, museum, farm shop and walks. Start with a wine tasting and then make your away around the property.

We travelled from Cape Town to visit, hike and enjoy dinner. Big mistake. We got there just after 2pm so no hiking. The lunch was a cheese platter (very nice) because too late for lunch (restaurant closes at 3pm) and dinner at the restaurant (a hefty 895 rand with wine per person) was a 'no go' as we had not...

We booked (essential) for a Friday morning food & wine tasting at LaMotte. The event is held on the covered stoep of the Pierneef restaurant and it is sheer excellence from the minute you enter the grounds. Friendly, helpful personnel at the gate, at reception, inside the restaurant, and Liliian, who hosted our tasting and greeted each of us with... More

From the friendly greeting at the front gate, absolutely beautiful grounds, really friendly and informative staff and the best value for money tasting in the valley, La Motte is not to be missed. We went there on a blustery day, which in a way just accentuated the oak trees and beautiful layout of La Motte. The wine tasting offers seven... More

The Pierneef gallery at la Motte is worth the visit. We did not do any wine tasting or eat at the restaurant

Lovely place - well run but the La Motte wines, in my opinion, are so acidic. I didn't find one, white or red I liked.

Over the last few days we visited 8 vineyards and tasted a great many wines. The ones at La Motte were certainly amongst the best. The introductions made by each of the wines were very informative. Beautiful premises, well worth a visit!

Recommended by some fellow golfers and they where spot on. We first had a walk round the grounds and museum/art gallery and then the wine tasting. A very knowledgeable young man served us with 7 wines all of which we enjoyed. We then had lunch in the restaurant and the food and service not forgetting the bottle of wine were... More

Just loved all the wine vats in the cellar and the way they did the lay-out with different displays in every row. There is ambient lighting and the room is refreshingly cool ! Outside the cellar there is a wonderful area with many tables and chairs where you can experience the great variety of wines.
