La Motte – Historical Wine Production in the Region Since the 1700s

La Motte Winery is present in the stunning Franschhoek Valley. The winery produces excellent wines that are popular all over the world due to their quality and structure. The property at La Motte Winery is an excellent place to enjoy traditional food, beautiful natural surroundings, and history. A German immigrant, Hans Hendrik Hattingh, bought a piece of land in the region, and in 1709, Pierre Joubert purchased the estate. The name La Motte comes from a small Provence village named La Motte d’Aigues. Dr. Anton Rupert bought the farm in 1970, and named the estate after this French village. Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg and her husband now own the winery. La Motte Winery uses modern viticultural practices and recently built a new cellar space. There are four historical monuments present in the estate named Jonkershuis, Historic Cellar, Water Mill, and the Manor House.

La Motte is one of the first wineries to be awarded the Environmental Management Certification for their sustainable viticultural efforts.

Sustainable and Ecological Methods in the Vineyards of their Winery

They always respect the environment and use maximum effort to protect nature and their vineyards during all winemaking processes. The climate and soils in the region are perfect for the cultivation of vines. They handpick the best grapes and carry it carefully to the winery. A proper fermentation and maturation process gives their wines excellent aromas and intriguing flavors.
