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!

We are from California and this was our first South African tasting. Laid back, informative and downright civilized. We enjoyed it a lot. And they made shipping to US easy. So I purchased some wine for home. I also love the Pinot age.

La Motte is close to my heart because it’s where my forefathers settles as Huguenots in 1695. The estate is beautiful and the wine tasting is very nice. You get 7 wines to taste for R60. I like the relaxing atmosphere of a wine estate,...More
