Food and Wine Tasting experience at La Motte

Recently awarded as the winner in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Awards for the category Best Food and Wine Matching Experience for the third time, the exceptional food and wine experience presented from   La Motte Wine Estate in the Franschhoek Valley needs little introduction.One of the central elements in this comprehensive offering, is the Friday morning Food and Wine Tasting and hot on the heels of its latest international recognition, La Motte is introducing an exciting new execution to this popular tasting.

Not only has Chef Michelle Theron and Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche reinvented and reinterpreted the pairing to present a brand new array of beautiful little tasters complementing the La Motte Classic Collection of wines, but the Tasting will now also be presented from Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant. Guests and culinary tourists now have the opportunity to enjoy being seated at the exclusive Chef’s Table (seating a group of eight) or on the expansive stoep, framed by the beautiful gardens and oak trees (for bigger groups). Chef Michelle’s delicately plated tasters beautifully complement the elegant environment, but still 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. Regarded for her on-trend interpretation of traditional Cape Winelands Cuisine, Michelle works closely with Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche in creating cuisine to beautifully complement the estate’s wines – whether they are enjoyed in this specialised tasting, as part of a meal in Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant or as part of one of the other experiences offered on the estate. Presented by well-informed and enthusiastic Wine Ambassadors, the La Motte Food and Wine Tasting aims to be both educational and enjoyable.

La Motte Food and Wine Tastings take place on Fridays at 10:00. Prior reservation is essential and can be made by calling the La Motte Tasting Room at +27 (0)21 876 8820 or e-mailing tasting@la-motte.co.za
