Exceptional, memorable Wine tasting experience
Apr 2021 • Friends
I have to say to have a Wine tasting experience during Covid, that you would give 7 ******* rating is exceptional.. I was blown away by the knowledge of wine, level of interaction, up selling skills, enjoyment and entertainment value. We were engaged since the beginning of the wine tasting experience untill we left.. The service from the Wine Ambassador was next level. Well done, James Horner. Takes a lot to impress a Wine Specialist/Sommelier, 18 yrs in the Industry. We will be back with more people. Other Wine Farms can go and learn How to blow your customer away with the service element.

La Motte Wine Estate is fantastic!
Dec 2020 • Family
In December we visited La Motte for wine tasting. It was increddible! Most beautiful place! From entry at the gates to tasting room is very clean, neat, beautiful gardens, vineyards and buildings. Wine tasting was priced very good. Had various wines to taste and it was indeed very difficult to choose the best wines. Their dessert wine name "Straw wine" is over the top delicious! I had to buy the wine and take it home to enjoy afterwards. Their wines is a must to taste. Very friendly and professional personnel! Nice restaurant and shops. Will go there again and again! A place you must visit.

wine tasting with James
Dec 2020
We had the best wine tasting led by James, who is the most knowledgeable and charming wine enthusiast. Not only that he knew everything about the wines he brought us but to taste, but made the experience quite different by using little scent samples from his extensive collection to us find the different aromas in the different wines. After that he used an aerator that totally changes the wine while being poured through it, opening it up as though it was decanted and left to stand for a while. Really amazing experience, James is a true enthusiast and an asset to La Motte!

Wine estate near Franschoek
Nov 2020 • Friends
We looked for a wine estate near Franschoek and ended up at La Motte. I'm really glad we did as it was a great experience. The farm and cellar is particularly well maintained, and especially beautiful. We had lovely coffee in the gardens, visited their small shop with numerous interesting gifts and attended the wine tasting. Their wines are excellent.

Fabulous!
Nov 2020 • Couples
My partner and I visited La Motte recently. We first strolled through the museum, which has an interesting history of the wine farm and the Rupert family. We also enjoyed the beautiful art and sculptures by well known South African and foreign artists. We then popped into the shop, which has some great gift ideas. After that we sat under the beautiful shady oak trees and shared some delicious chilled La Motte Sauvignon Blanc accompanied by their generous charcuterie board. A lovely way to wile away the hours on a balmy summer day!

We went to experience the hiking trail and it was wonderful! The fynbos is stunning and views awesome. I've done the tasting before and regularly enjoy the wine at home.

Great service, nice food

It was the 1st outing of our U3A Wine Appreciation group since lockdown and we were welcome at La Motte.A brief visit to the museum (worthwhile), an informative wine tasting and an excellent lunch, what more can one expect. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us oldies.

La Motte (art display)
Aug 2020 • Business
I specially went to art gallery at La Motte. They were displaying Pierneef’s works and he was with my Great Grandfather Pieter Wenning as part of “The Individualists,” a group of Dutch artists in the early 1900’s. Pieter Wenning was one of the artists credited with bringing Impressionism to South Africa.

The variety of art was wonderful and the added display of his equipment was very informative.

Enjoyed good coffee in the garden afterwards.
