Celebrating a culture of hospitality and a heritage of passionate Cape cooks who were well-known for their pastries and confectionery, Pierneef à La Motte invites you to a beautifully presented Winelands Tea.
The Winelands Tea is served in the restaurant and on the stoep or in the garden and guests are able to choose from a selection of the finest teas of the world. Avid coffee drinkers are welcome to enjoy a steaming cup of La Motte’s house blend instead of the tea or even homemade fruit cordial on a hot summer’s day. Following the custom of the old Cape, where the man of the house often served some sweet wine (called a soet sopie), guests will have the option to also order a glass of La Motte sweet wine or La Motte sparkling wine*.
The confectionery is inspired by Cape Winelands traditions and guests can expect an enticing offering of delicate smoked salmon sandwiches, sausage rolls, savoury tartlets, choux of the day, charming macaroons, traditional sweet biscuits and an assortment of delectable tea cakes.
Cost: R165 per person (*Sparkling wine can be ordered at an additional R65 per glass)
Reservation essential, please book at the restaurant:
