We did the 5km walk on the estate through the fynbos. The walk is not too strenuous. Beautiful views on the way. You pay at the tasting room and get a small bottle of water and a nice map.

We chose to visit La Motte based on many very positive reviews. Perhaps turning up around 1400 on a Sunday wasn't the brightest idea, but when we said we were only there for a tasting and an accompanying snack such as a cheeseboard, we were...More
