Classical Concerts at La Motte Wine Estate

La Motte's culture of excellence reaches far beyond wine-making, by embracing the wonder of classical music

La Motte wine estate in Franschhoek is home to many a spectacular blend of wine, as well as fine food inspired by the artwork of the famous Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1886–1957), which you will find on exhibition at the La Motte Museum. What’s more, this one-of-a-kind estate also promotes the appreciation of classical music through their Classical Music Concerts, which takes place from October to December 2017.

In line with its culture of excellence, La Motte is committed to historic and cultural preservation, in architecture and the arts, which is why they host some of the finest classical artists in South Africa at their spectacular venue.

On 21 October 2017 pianist Christopher Park will grace the La Motte Historic Cellar stage with a live performance of the work of famous composers Schumann, Stravinsky and Neuwirth. Park, who won the prestigious Leonard Bernstein Award in 2014, will be performing work from his new album.

On 18 November 2017 the Grobler-Martens Trio will be treating audiences to a magnificent performance. This trio, which comprises musicians and members of staff from Stellenbosch University, includes pianist Pieter Grobler, violinist Suzanne Martens and cellist Peter Martens. They were nominated as one of the best instrumental productions at the Woordfees festival in Stellenbosch earlier this year. Expect the classic sounds of Debussy, Schumann and Shostakovich.

On 9 December 2017 mezzo-soprano Minette du Toit-Pearce and baritone George Stevens welcomes the festive season in song for the annual Christmas concert at La Motte. Expect an oratoria of Christmas carols and songs. Together with narrator Johann Nel, La Motte, Minette du Toit-Pearce and George Stevens promises you with a Christmas production you’ll never forget!

With its picturesque setting, historic buildings and peaceful atmosphere, La Motte is an enchanting destination for all visitors to the Cape Winelands.


Admission to the Classical Concerts will cost R200/p. La Motte’s gates will open at 6pm and the show will start promptly at 7pm. Reservations can be made by calling Angela on +27(0)21 876 8000 or email [email protected].
