From the original winery built in 1858 to the spectacular Hotel Marqués de Riscal, designed by the renowned Canadian architect Frank O.

The wine estates of the South Africa’s Western Cape region have, perhaps an unfair advantage when it comes to attracting wine-loving travelers. Surrounded by towering mountain peaks, and two oceans within easy reach from the vineyards, dramatic scenery is taken as a given.

Which means estates need to work hard to set themselves apart in creating a memorable experience to surround the act of tasting the fruits of the vines. And nobody in the Cape does that better than La Motte wine estate in Franschhoek.

It's not really that surprising that Chateau Lynch Bages was announced as Best of Wine Tourism Grand prizewinner for France, despite the stiff competition.
