Enjoying international acclaim for the quality of its food and wine offering, La Motte wine estate’s passionate wine and culinary team invites guests to an evening of Vintage Wine and Venison in Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant, presenting a 5-course menu beautifully paired with exclusive older vintages from the La Motte Vinoteque.
Chef de Cuisine Michelle Theron will introduce her menu with its innovative interpretation of venison, while Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche will give insights into the maturation of wine as well as the specific pairings of the evening.
Sharing La Motte’s passion for seasonality, regionality and staying true to nature, acclaimed author, C. Johan Bakkes will join the evening with an entertaining *talk based on his most recent publication, Openbaring, sharing tales on his journeys to the coldest and warmest places on earth still inhabited by man. Heeding the warning expressed in Revelations 3:15-16, that a “lukewarm” life is not worth living, he will share the inspirational tale of the road less traveled.
The Evening of Vintage Wine and Venison promises to be both educational and entertaining and is the ideal opportunity for hunter friends and those passionate about food and wine to reserve a table and enjoy the renowned hospitality of La Motte.
