Sauvignon Blanc Experience

All contributing their unique profiles, grapes used in the complex, yet vibrant La Motte Sauvignon Blanc originate from the best Sauvignon Blanc-growing areas in the Western Cape – Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Durbanville, Darling as well as the cool-climate vineyards of Walker Bay and Elim, certified as Wine of Origin: South Coast.

Eager to share the importance of site and terroir, La Motte invites guests to join Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche in the La Motte Cellar to taste these site-specific new vintage Sauvignon Blancs from the tanks. Guests can compare the same vintage and variety from various areas and, guided by Edmund’s expertise, will be able to identify the prolific differences.

Continuing the focus on Sauvignon Blanc, guests will be hosted to a formal tasting introducing a vertical tasting of various vintages of the estate’s acclaimed Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc. Ending on a high, Chef Michelle Theron of Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant will present a three-course Sauvignon Blanc-paired menu, showcasing this variety’s significance as a partner to food!

Join for a morning session with lunch, or evening session with dinner.
