When we arrived we were greeted by peacocks roaming the grounds, and on our way to the tasting room we were commenting on how beautiful the estate is, so well looked after, it felt like we were in Italy noting the feel of the overall estate. We had a lovely wine tasting on the terrace, and I would love to... More

We recently went for a late afternoon tasting at Morgenhof. The estate is picturesque with Cape Dutch houses and beautiful garden lawns. We enjoyed the wine tasting, although the staff did not know too much about wine, she knew the basics and was friendly. The gardens provide a relaxing atmosphere, and Morgenhof would be an ideal setting to spend the... More

We wandered around the tasting room for 10 minutes...NO ONE greeted us or even acknowledged our existence. They had numerous people working in there. When another group walked in and were acknowledged, I told my husband, "I guess we're invisible and they can't be bothered with us!" We left and had a DELIGHTFUL afternoon of wine tastings at other vineyards.... More

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent meal at the restaurant. The service was friendly. although the waiter forgot our starter, it was such a pleasant spot, we didn't mind at all. One of a few places that offers value for money, and cellar prices on the wine consumed at the table. The wine tasting was limited in terms of... More

The Morgenhof wine-tasting area is separate from the restaurant area and is located in a beautiful "maze-like" garden setting. The outdoor deck area offers great views of the surrounding areas, although (on the day) there was a bee-hive situated in the roof just above us. Wine-tastings are R25pp for a selection of 5 good wines, which should most definitely be... More

Stopped for lunch and wine at this delightful spot. Friendly staff. Very relaxed lunch which consisted of several tapas dishes, superbly prepared and presented. Memorable experience. It goes without saying the wine was sublime, sadly we'd could not bring any home.

Along the wine route you are simply spoilt for choice. This was my first visit here and I was not disappointed. Staff were friendly and efficient - service with a smile!! food was excellent - made of fresh local produce!! I loved the Morgenhof Rose Pinotage - music to my palate with its soft and almost velvetty texture, easy to... More
