Viticulture



The La Motte vineyards have been overseen by leading viticulturist Pietie le Roux since 1986. They are managed using advanced practices in the selection of vineyard sites, rootstock and clones, grape varieties planted, vineyard aspects and vine spacing. These practices are refined by the latest technology such as satellite monitoring and infrared scanning of the vines.

On La Motte, as well as La Motte’s Nabot farm in the Walker Bay region, biological farming is practised. Additional grapes are obtained from other affiliated family-owned farms and La Motte-managed vineyards situated in various regions. This adds versatility to the grapes supplied to the La Motte cellar.

Passionate about terroir, La Motte enjoys WWF Conservation Champion, with the objective of keeping biodiversity intact.
