Visited Morgenster on a cold winter morning. We were warmly welcomed at the entrance and escorted to a lovely warm fireplace for some olive oil tasting. It was well presented and very informative. The Olive oil and pastes are fantastic. Wonderful morning enjoyed by myself and daughter. Nice alternative if wine tasting is not on your list.

We stopped by not really knowing what to expect but as soon as we walked into the building we were made to feel right at home. We sat by a warm fireplace tasting Olives, Olive oil and Wine. Time flew by without us even realizing. The lady helping us was very friendly and told us all about the products we... More

We had a marvelous afternoon visiting this vineyard about 25 minutes from Stellenbosch. The staff were knowledgeable about wines and olives and they presented us with a fine pairing of olives, oils, and wine for about $8 for two. The grounds are quite beautiful and worth a visit. I highly recommend a stop in Somerset West to get the feel... More

Morgenster is tucked away near Somerset-West and not on the wine route everyone knows about. But it is all worth it to take the small detour and visit the 3 wine farms in that area. The mountain views are spectacular, wine tasting room and outside area stunning and the wine Excellent. The also offer an olive oil tasting, its good... More

Great olive oil tasting, with an amazing restaurant to relax at afterwards. Their range of olive oil goes from sharp and grassy to buttery smooth and mild, something for every palate and purpose. Highly recommend

We enjoyed the olive oil and wine tasting very much and it stood out on a day filled with wine tastings. The olive oils are excellent and are served with bread, whole black and green olives, and olive pastes, not tapenade as mentioned by other reviewers. Tapenade always includes capers, as the name is from the Provencal word for caper.... More

We started off with a wine and olive tasting, which included sampling the different olive oils, tapenade (with bread and crackers) and olives. They were all so delicious, we bought bottles of wine, olives and tapenade to take away with us. We then went on to the lovely restaurant, where we sat outside on the veranda and had a delicious...

Very nice Boutique Vineyard with the chance to try the owner's Olive Oil made in the Italian way and great wines. The Main House is very well decorated and had this very unique old table from a monastery in Italy and very old cool pottery Amphoras from Spain. Our great Sommelier and wine tour guide told us that she was... More
