La Motte is committed to historic and cultural preservation and architecture. This is why they host some of the finest classical artists in South Africa at their spectacular venue.

You can get a taste a little further down.
FRENCH FESTIVITIES WITH SA'S "PIANO MAN"
On Saturday 14 July, enjoy a mixture of classical music and a jazz piano repertoire from Charles du Plessis, known as South Africa’s piano man and the youngest African to earn the title of a Steinway artist. He will be performing pieces from the classical works of Ravel, Debussy and Chopin.

The theme for this year’s concert series is based on a French flair and guests are encouraged to stay after the concert to enjoy a glass of La Motte wine.
