We had such a relaxing afternoon, enjoying the wonderful wines of Morgenster. The view over the Lourensford river and Helderberge mountains is fantastic. The staff is extremely friendly and very knowledgable about their products. Next time we will do the olive oil tasting!

As complete novices, and under the watchful gaze of the young lady we were allocated, we Started by soaking up the location, the sunshine and the ambience that this place has to offer... Then take in the olive oils, the olive pastes over some bread and biscuits and then move on to the wines of your choice! At a total... More

We visited in the afternoon and enjoyed a combination tasting of wine and olive oil. The olive oils were excellent and our tasting host helped us to discover a wide variety of excellent award winning oils. After the oil tasting, we tasted the wines. This estate grows mostly Italian grapes. I was really looking forward to this as I lived... More

Very enjoyable experience. We had both wine and olive oil tastings. The wine was lovely but the olive oil for me had the edge. Particularly mixing the oils with the balsamic vinegar creating different taste combinations at the end. Highly recommend. The staff were all extremely friendly and professional.

Wine tastings - done many. Olive Oil tastings - this was a first and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is not something I had planned to do, but "when in Rome"! It was fascinating to discover the smells and textures of the different olive oils (virgin, extra-virgin, truffle, balsamic, etc.). All came in neat little glasses that you warm up... More

Morgenster is really a very nice experience. The wine varietals which we are not used to in South Africa is something special and I never knew that olive oils could be that interesting. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. This is a place I would recommend to anyone at any given time

We had a most enjoyable wine tasting at Morgenster, leaving with among others the Merlot 2012 and award winning olive oil. The staff were helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about the products on offer. Look out for the beautiful glass topped table made from wild olive (Olea capensis) roots. I also love the vertical vine against the wall, several metres... More

Their wine tastings is very good but i think if you are the type of person that are into olive tasting then this is the place for you. They have a big range of olives that can be tasted and off course which are really good as well. Together with their exceptional service they are great.
