Last night was the final night of the launch week for the the new restaurant, museum and farm store complex at La Motte. The entire team put in a great effort and based on the feedback from everyone the launch was a great success. Besides the new complex we also officially introduced The Wine Bearer, a four-meter tall bronze sculpture, situated at the top of the drive into La Motte. The 560kg sculpture of a woman holding a goblet was made by sculptor Toby Megaw. Above is a photo of myself and my wife, Hanneli, after unveiling a statuette of The Wine Bearer during the welcoming speeches. We are standing in the museum with paintings by great South African artist Jacob Hendrik Pierneef in the background.
