La Motte Wine Estate, in Franschhoek, was recently awarded as the winner in the Drinks International Wine Tourism Awards for the category Best Food and Wine Matching Experience for the third time. This exceptional food and wine experience, hosted on Friday mornings, now has an exciting new execution.
Chef Michelle Theron and Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche have reinvented and reinterpreted the pairing to present a brand new array of exquisite little tasters complementing the La Motte Classic Collection of wines.
The tasting will now be presented from Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant where guests and culinary tourists are able to be seated at the exclusive Chef’s Table (seating a group of eight) or on the expansive stoep, surrounded by the beautiful gardens and oak trees (for bigger groups).
Chef Michelle’s delicately plated tasters beautifully complement the elegant environment, but still represent flavours and tastes we experience every day and will guide guests towards more reliable future food and wine selections, with reference to weight and intensity, as well as the influence of the primary taste sensations.
The La Motte Food and Wine Tasting is presented by well-informed, enthusiastic Wine Ambassadors and aims to be both educational and enjoyable.
La Motte Food and Wine Tastings take place on Fridays at 10:00. Prior reservation is essential and can be made here. A tasting will take one hour and the fee is R130 p.p.
