Seasonal Culinary Experience


La Motte invites you to JAN Franschhoek Season II, an exceptional food and wine experience presented from a charming historic cottage, the Veepos, right in the middle of the Franschhoek Valley’s most picturesque lavender fields.

This exceptional, seasonal food and wine experience combines the nostalgia of a South African family table with Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen’s Michelin-star culinary innovation and promises to be just as popular as the first season.

The team responsible for your JAN Franschhoek experience, consists of a culinary collective led by Chef Antro Davel. Expect regional traditions, familiar flavours and local ingredients transformed to reflect the exciting context of modern global cuisine. Sourced and prepared with the utmost care and consideration, dishes are paired with the estate’s award-winning wines and presented with mesmerizing flair.

We offer a seasonal tasting menu and wine pairing at ZAR 2850 per person.

Dinner (Wednesday to Saturday) starts at 19:00 but guests should arrive at the La Motte Manor House meeting point at 18:30 on the reserved date.

Sunday lunch starts at 12:30 and guests should arrive at the La Motte Manor House meeting point at 12:00 on the reserved date.

Due to the nature of the JAN Franschhoek experience, it is not suitable for children under the age of 12.

Please note that the food and wine experience takes place at one communal table that seats 18 people.
