Not only is there now, more than ever before, a focus on food, with a magnitude of television channels and magazines trying to shape our culinary skills, but more often than not the carefully plated masterpieces are also photographed and presented with a glass of wine.

As such, food and wine matching has become the order of the day and there is increasing attention to selecting a wine to go with a particular dish.
Striving towards innovation when it comes to the experience of wine and food, La Motte has introduced a tutored Food and Wine Tasting of note. Presented from a private room in the elegant La Motte Tasting Room, well-informed and enthusiastic Wine Ambassadors will pair five La Motte wines with five tastings of Pierneef à La Motte’s cuisine created by Chef Chris Erasmus.

And, although the little tasters in the Food and Wine Tastings are beautifully presented as examples of haute cuisine, they represent flavours and tastes we experience every day and will guide guests towards more reliable future food and wine selections, with reference to weight and intensity, as well as the influence of the primary taste sensations.
In compiling the material and selection for this special experience, La Motte’s team of wine-makers and chefs has also called upon the expertise of Katinka van Niekerk, South African authority when it comes to food and wine pairing.

La Motte Food and Wine Tastings can be enjoyed from Wednesdays to Fridays at 11:00

Prior reservation is essential and can be made by calling the La Motte Tasting Room at +27 (0)21 876 8820 or e-mailing 
A tasting will take one hour and the fee is R120 per person.
