Celebrating a culture of hospitality and a heritage of passionate Cape cooks who were well-known for their pastries and confectionery, Pierneef à La Motte invites you to a beautifully presented Winelands Tea.
The Winelands Tea is served in the restaurant and on the stoep or in the garden and guests are able to choose from a selection of the finest teas of the world. Avid coffee drinkers are welcome to enjoy a steaming cup of La Motte’s house blend instead of the tea or even homemade fruit cordial on a hot summer’s day. Following the custom of the old Cape, where the man of the house often served some sweet wine (called a soet sopie), guests will have the option to also order a glass of sweet wine or La Motte sparkling wine*.
The confectionery is inspired by Cape Winelands traditions and guests can expect an enticing offering of delicate trout-filled pancakes, chocolate truffles in traditional flavours such as milk tart, charming macaroons and an assortment of delectable cakes.
Cost: R165 per person (*Sparkling wine can be ordered at an additional R65 per glass)
Reservation essential, please book at the restaurant:
