The Environment

This management is factored into the long-term strategy as well as daily running of the estate. Examples of environmental care
include the protection of precious natural flora known as ‘fynbos’ on the adjoining Wemmershoek mountains and adherence to
biologic principles in the production of grapes, flowers and ethereal oils.

La Motte was one of the first wine estates to be awarded the coveted ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification.

The estate also complies with IPW, is a member of the Green Mountain Eco Route in the Groenlandberg area, and has received WWW Conservation Champion. La Motte, as well as its Nabot farm in the Walker Bay coastal area, are committed to biologic farming principles.
