Franschhoek Through a Painter’s Eyes: The Pierneef Experience

Franschhoek Through a Painter’s Eyes: The Pierneef Experience La Motte

These weekly sessions at La Motte explore how the past is inextricably intertwined with the future of this feted Franschhoek estate.

La Motte Wine Estate in fairest Franschhoek is worth a visit any day of the week – but if you are planning a visit any time soon, you might want to do so on a Tuesday morning to enjoy The Pierneef Experience.

Paint us a pretty picture…

These experiences (or guided personal tours) offer fascinating insights into Pierneef’s life, delving into his various periods, themes and styles, using more than 100 original works. La Motte Museum’s newest exhibition, A Tribute to the life and work of Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1886-1957), is the focus of these experiences.

A painterly feast

Guests are invited to enjoy a tasting of the Pierneef Collection wines in a private tasting area, whereafter, chef Michelle Theron will conclude the experience with a very grand cheese course, providing culinary references to Pierneef’s Premier Mine painting.

Reservations are essential (online or through the museum), and close at 5pm on the previous Saturday.
