Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant

Fine wine, fine art and fine food in Franschhoek

From the moment you enter La Motte wine estate you’re elevated into another world – one where beauty, grace, good food and great wine reigns supreme.

We’re on our way to lunch at the farm’s on-site restaurant, Pierneef à La Motte, where both the food and the decor is inspired by the work of the late South African artist, Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef (1886-1957).

With wine in honour of Pierneef and a museum housing some 104 Pierneef artworks, La Motte added the Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant to its properties as another dedication to the art giant, this time in the form of food.

At the top of the winery’s driveway, we’re greeted by a tall, bronze sculpture of a woman holding an overflowing chalice. The Franschhoek mountains and sprawling vineyards cut a dramatic backdrop behind her. In
