Situated in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley in the Cape winelands, La Motte is home to some of South Africa’s finest wines, recognized internationally for their exceptional quality. In harmony with the production of wines, La Motte has also ventured into flower cultivation and the production of ethereal oils.

Environmental management is a high priority at La Motte and is factored into the long-term strategy as well as daily running of the estate. Examples of this include protecting fynbos on the adjoining Wemmershoek mountains and organic wine farming in selected vineyard blocks.

La Motte was one of the first wines estates to be awarded the coveted ISO 14000 Environmental Management Certification. The estate also complies with the ISO 9000:2000 certification, is a member of the Green Mountain Eco Route in the Groenlandberg area, and is accredited to the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative. La Motte's Nabot farm in the Walker Bay coastal area has been developed as an organic farming unit where the use of fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, plant growth regulators and animal feed additives are avoided or largely eliminated.
