The new tasting room at La Motte has received a lot of very positive feedback, a testimony to the team that designed and built it as well as the tasting room staff who serve our guests.
Below are a couple of extracts from comments left on the Spit or Swallow website, which allows wine enthusiasts to rate South Africa’s wine farms. The ratings of our guests have La Motte firmly in the top ten wine farms in South Africa. Thank you for all the positive comments and rest assured we are working hard to become even better.
“This is sure to become a Franschhoek flagship venue. The tasting area is impressive but not brash, clean but not sterile and opulent without being ostentatious. It’s a smart place to relax. Great wines in general; spend a little extra and try those listed on the reverse of the wine list. Service was good and the staff very friendly. The tray with (proper) glassware, napkin, water and bread all add to the experience” – Brett Garner
“Elegant, sophisticated and drop dead gorgeous” – Madame de Wyn
“Of all the ‘fancy’ places I’ve been in our beautiful winelands, this one rates in the top three… La Motte shines as it takes both the classic and modern and forges a marriage of esthetic excellence… the service, literally silver-plate service, was out of this world” – Martin Oord
