Grapes for the production of La Motte wines are drawn from La Motte estate as well as other farms in the Cape Winelands. Thanks to the variety in terroirs, grapes from each region make a unique contribution to the flavor components of La Motte wines. La Motte’s Nabot farm in the Walker Bay coastal region has been developed as a biologic farming operation.
The unique charm of La Motte’s wines comes from the character bestowed upon them by particular soil types and a moderate climate, creating growing conditions that favor the finest grapes.
La Motte’s well-equipped cellar enables wine-makers to blend tradition with modern science in shaping wines globally renowned for their consistency and excellence.
Having achieved certification and accreditation from ISO 14001 and HACCP, La Motte not only complies with the principles of environmental care in wine-making but also confidently complies with international food safety and quality assurance standards.
