La Motte is a popular destination for those who enjoy the finer things in life - elegant wines, delicious meals, beautiful art and farm-style shopping. While wine sales have again been halted, we still would love you to experience the calm winter beauty of the Franschhoek Valley. Join us on Saturdays and Sundays in Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant, the Farm Shop and La Motte Museum.
Do you feel like taking a picturesque drive? Join us this weekend! We are open from 09:00 - 16:00.
Hearty, warming, moreish - join us for comfort food in Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant
Chef Eric Bulpitt and the Pierneef à La Motte team are excited to treat you to a brand new menu offering comfort food and hearty favourites. Choose between warming winter options such as moreish lamb’s ribs, a flavourful seafood lasagne and rich tomatoey beef olives. Just want to get out of the house? Thaw in a sunny spot or in front of our welcoming fireplace with a cup of coffee or tea and freshly-baked mosbolletjies, enjoy a light lunch of deliciously topped flatbreads and nibbles or indulge with delectable confectionery and treats. Click here for the new menu.
Farm-style Shopping – from the estate or online!
The La Motte Farm Shop is now open for delicious confectionery, farm-baked breads and beautiful gifts and unique décor ideas. Visit us over weekends or shop online.
For the love of Art
The La Motte Museum invites those who appreciate the finer things in life to a special exhibition selected by the estate’s owner, Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg. Complementing the permanent Pierneef exhibition, Celebrating the Love of Art features works by acclaimed artists such as Irma Stern and Maggie Laubscher.
The safety of our guests and staff is our priority and all systems are in place to ensure you can be confident to visit the estate. (Please familiarise yourself with Covid-19 Protocol on La Motte.)
