Pierneef à La Motte presents a modern way with SA heritage cuisine

A sophisticated dining experience at Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant in Franschhoek

Pierneef à La Motte, the renowned restaurant at the La Motte wine estate, has reinterpreted their menu to honour the culinary heritage of South Africa with unique and modern cuisine that everyone needs to try.

Named after South African artist, Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1886–1957), Pierneef à La Motte’s menu is influenced by Pierneef’s love of the country’s diversity and landscape, which is embraced and reflected in the ingredients and recipes.

FROM SOUTH AFRICA WITH LOVE
The beautiful Pierneef à La Motte has a sophisticated and elegant ambience. Those coming for lunch are treated to a delicious à la carte menu, which offers a selection of starters, main meals and desserts that change seasonally. The menu represents locally-sourced artisan ingredients that are seasonal and sustainable. All dishes are also paired with wine suggestions from the wine list of current and vintage La Motte as well as other local and international wines. Lunch is served Tuesdays to Sundays from 11:30am–3pm.

Eric Bulpitt has joined Pierneef à La Motte as executive chef and his passion for modern cuisine and innovation is reflected in the menu. Eric developed his love for cooking while spending his holidays on his grandparents’ self-sustained farm. With his passion and expertise, Eric is guided by global standards and stays on top of trends in the industry.

THE GARDEN MENU
Another new addition to the Pierneef à La Motte menu is the Garden Menu where guests are invited to enjoy a more relaxed dining experience outside in the estate’s garden or on the stoep from October to April. Share a seasonal menu with a glass of wine outside in the garden.

The Garden Menu offers traditional South African flavours and gives guests a chance to sample a selection of smaller places while sipping on delicious La Motte wines. It is served Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

OUMA’S BREAD AND MORE
Who doesn’t love a good farm store? And La Motte’s Farm Shop does not disappoint with the wide variety of items on sale. The selection includes Ouma’s bread, a Shiraz loaf, pot bread or fruited rye loaf, a range of cakes and other baked goods. And even if you are just looking for souvenirs, you can find handmade stationery and books, music, kitchen items and even La Motte’s own coffee blend and Arômes de La Motte body products.

AWARD-WINNING FOOD AND WINE TASTING
If you want to experience both the taste of the award-winning La Motte wines and the excellent cuisine from Pierneef à La Motte, why not book a Wine and Food Tasting? La Motte’s Wine and Food Tasting has won the Drinks International Wine Tourism Award four times already for Best Food and Wine Matching Experience.

Taking place every Friday morning, by appointment only, a wine ambassador escorts guests through an educational wine and food tasting. Chef Eric Bulpitt of Pierneef à La Motte and cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche work together to create cuisine that complements the La Motte estate’s wines.
