Sweet wine and Sparkling wine can be ordered at an additional R20 per glass
The Winelands Tea will be served in the restaurant and on the stoep or in the garden and guests will be able to choose from a selection of the finest teas of the world.
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 order a glass of sweet wine or La Motte sparkling wine with their tea, while avid coffee drinkers will be able to enjoy a steaming cup of La Motte’s house blend or even homemade fruit cordial on a hot summer’s day.
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, macaroons and an assortment of delectable cakes.
Served in a tea-set especially crafted by Ella-Lou O’Meara, who is also responsible for the talking-point ceramic chandeliers in the restaurant, the individually hand-made cups, saucers and tea pots are painted with typical Famille Rose patterns. The Dutch East India Company originally brought these Famille Rose design crockery from China and transported them to the Netherlands.
Celebrating their culture of hospitality and their heritage of
passionate Cape cooks who are well-known for their pastries and
confectionery, Pierneef à La Motte hosts a beautifully
presented Winelands Tea.
