Morgenster Wine and Olive tasting

What a wonderful experience, vertical wine tastings on stunning Bordeaux style blends. The Olive and oil tasting was quite interesting and informative. Recommended when in the area

Morgenster has one of the best olive oils in the world. In their Estate, it is possible to do a tasting of 5 different sorts of olive oil + a balsamic vinegar. And, their wine tasting is also very good, (try their Italian style wines). The setting is possibly the most beautiful we saw in such an incredibly beautiful region.... More

Went for dinner and ordered liver with additional mash potatoes. The food arrived minus the mash, we requested this to be brought, not possible. The chef came from the kitchen in a very dirty jacket and informed us that it was not possible to serve mash with any other dish than those stated on the menu!!! The service was terrible... More

Having visited many Wine farms I can say without a doubt that this is my new favourite. The setting is beautiful, although not the best, but the Wine is absolutely magnificent which makes it completely worth while. This is one of the few places you can buy a 2001 bottle of wine, which is magnificent and can still age at... More

The newly opened restaurant has brought original Italian cuisine to the Winelands in a magnificent venue adjacent to a beautiful dam and the Helderberg Mountains. Sitting there at sunset it is breathtakign to watch the mountains turn 'pink' and during the day to feel the breezes while sitting outdoors. There is a magnificent window framing the vineyards and mountains in... More

Our first visit to Morgenster as we usually visit Vergelegen next door. We decided to try an Olive oil tasting under the expert tutelage of the wonderful Arlette. If you get to Morgenster, buy the lemon olive oil - it's delicious.

I didn't know much about Morgenster wine estate besides the wine and olives. We had time to spare and visited the estate and were we in for a treat! Morgenster is in a class of its own, the glorious view of Helderberg Mountain whilst experiencing the wine and olive tasting should definitely go for a bucket list experience. The very... More

I struggled to find 95atmorgenster on tripadvisor, but here is my review. We booked a table for 12:30 but when we got there, the table was not ready...?! Dirty glasses and no cutlery. Setting is beautiful and the atmosphere was great, however the food was a lot less than spectacular. Plating presentation is grey and uninteresting and was the same... More

Beautiful venue but sadly disappointed with the food that was served, it was nothing special, normal type of food I would cook at my home. I found it strange to order my side dish at a separate price. Being South African we are used to have that as complimentary. The service was extremely slow, we waited 20 minutes for our... More

Wendy is a star ! She went above and beyond to accommodate my Swedish group at the last minute for an Olive Oil/Olive Tasting. Thank you Wendy for being so welcoming and enthusiastic about Morgenster's wonderful olive oils/olives and of course the piece de resistance.....the wines ! 5*service backed up by 5* wines !
