Alternatively, you can book ahead for specialised tastings: the Comparative Shiraz Tasting explores Shiraz and how it benefits from its environment whilst also being complemented by its other ingredients, or the Vinoteque Tasting explores the older vintages of carefully-chosen, award-winning La Motte wines next to the current vintages and discover the reasons and benefits of bottle-ageing and maturation.
 
The art lovers out there will appreciate original works of art in the tasting rooms by distinguished South African artist, Jacob Hendrik Pierneef, who is also the namesake for La Motte’s Pierneef Collection of premium wines.
 
Pierneef depicted the beauty of South African landscape with creativity and originality; following on in the Pierneef theme, La Motte’s restaurant is named after the artist. The restaurant echoes Pierneef’s creativity by offering traditional dishes fused with a modern interpretation. If you enjoy what you taste, you can take home a recipe book complete with all their special recipes and history.
 
With its stunning setting, sumptuous cooking and historic charm, La Motte is the perfect destination for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
