La Motte

La Motte farm in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley is an enchanting destination and home to threatened mountain fynbos.

Since 2007, La Motte has rehabilitated 35 hectares of degraded mountain vegetation. This involved clearing alien plants and creating an indigenous nursery to transfer indigenous species back to the mountain.

Every year, a team removes alien seedlings to avoid regrowth of this invasive vegetation. La Motte’s commitment to the principles and practices of excellence in wine production and environmental sustenance is acknowledged by a host of accolades and awards.

Established in 1970, the farm has a strong focus on arts and culture as well as conservation. It is also home to a five-kilometre hiking trail – opened in 2010 – to encourage visitors to explore the beautiful and pristine mountain fynbos.

Area conserved: 35 ha
