La Motte is a beautiful wine farm with good wine. We went on a Sunday when the wine tasting was closed but still got some cheese and wine in the garden which was lovely.

While the food and winery at La Motte are amazing and beautiful, the hike is a not-to-be-missed experience different to most Franshhoek activities. The 5km hike is through the vineyards and mountain (it is difficult in places) and is fantastic. We even saw Baboons!
