About
Trading hours: BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Sat and Public holidays by appointment only. For updates to opening hours, please check Marbrin web site. We are a small family-run boutique olive farm nestled in the renowned Robertson Breede River Valley surrounded by the Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountains. We extract extra virgin olive oil and process our own unique range of table olives and tapenade. Come and enjoy the ambience of the Robertson Valley as well as the taste of our olives and olive oil, a fruit well-known for its remarkable health benefits. Heading out of Robertson towards Ashton on the Red you will turn left into into Klaasvoogds East (NOT Klaasvoogds West) and travel for about another 2km's till you see the big green Marbrin Olive growers board on your right, turn in there and follow the dirt road for another 2KM'S till you reach the tasting room. Road can be a little bumpy in places, but worth it.

    A great start to route 62!
    An excellent start to our Route 62 drive to The Garden Route. The farm is set in a lovely area just next to Robertson. You drive through a beaten track surrounded by vines and then olive trees. We were welcomed by the jovial owner, and had no problem in us arriving later than planned. We tasted loads of olive oils, tapenades, delicious bread, limoncello, olives (all either made or grown by them). It was all truly excellent! The tasting fee is a mere R50, but you will probably not pay anything as you will buy a lot of goodies. PS: Do yourself a favour and buy the coriander seed infused oil!

    Genuine 'top notch' hospitality and 'THE BEST' Olives and Olive Oils.
    We were staying at our favourite haunt in the Robertson valley at Excelsior Manor guesthouse and through visiting here at Marbrin back in 2016, it is essential to book because these two very hard working people(husband and wife team, Clive and Bryony), have to plan around their working farm. On this occasion it was Bryony who greeted us and gave the most informative, humorous, candid outlook into the world of Marbrin, the Olive oil industry in RSA and best of all the dutiful full tasting experience- these are our favourite Olive oils. Fabulous experience, thank you once again and we will enjoy our purchases from our home in England and think of Marbrin. What gem of a place- two fabulous people. Until 2025...vi see igen...we'll meet again.

    Fantastic Olive & Oil tasting experience in this excellent small farm
    DON'T MISS THIS EXPERIENCE!! We spent a fantastic couple of hours at the Marbrin Olive farm. Bryony and Clive certainly have a passion for their farm and what they produce. The Olive oil was the best I have tasted in my life, and the Olive Oil & the homemade Balsamic reduction was mindblowing. We not only tasted amazing produce, but we also had a great laugh at the same time. walked away with 3 oils, some Balsamic reduction and some home made Limoncello!! Bravo People... keep it up!!

    Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this Olive farm!
    We had the most delightful, entertaining and festive Friday afternoon at Marbrin! A truly memorable experience learning about Olive farming, the process, passion and pure magic of making oils, tapenades and even limoncello. The homemade bread was amazing and also a tasty Chenin Blanc paired with our tasting, made for a great afternoon! We couldn’t have asked for a better end to our stay in Robertson. Highly recommended!

MARBRIN OLIVES - ROBERTSON. Set up an appointment to visit this olive farm and indulge in all things olive. Luscious oils, tasty olives, real tapenade, soaps and if you are lucky you might even get to try the amazing ice cream. Clive is a very enthusiastic and charismatic host so prepare to be entertained! A great visit. #olives #oliveoil #oliveoils #olivesoap #tapenade #klaasvoogsmeander #robertsontourism #winevalleysafari #visitsouthafrica #cometocapetown #westerncape #robertson #wineandoliveroute @marbrinolives

We are so pleased that we took a couple of hours out to visit Marbrin and to enjoy their olive tasting. Bryony was excellent as a host and kept us very well entertained. The range of olive oils is impressive. Whenever we go back to that area we will visit again.

One simply cannot do a trip to Robertson without a visit to Marbrin Olive Growers. Briony and Clives passion for their products is clearly evident...and their recipe suggestions are endless! Such an entertaining outing - and their olive products are superb

This is something not to be missed when in the Robertson Valley. Most interesting tour and tasting and the best olive oil and olive products. Clive, Briony and Isla are the most perfect hosts, sharing all their knowledge with visitors. We look forward to our next visit to Marbrin Olive Farm.

We were recommended from two sources that Marbrin was a place to buy olive oil. It is a relatively rough access road but the owners were delightful with great produce which should find a wider market. The dill infused oil was a favourite

Had a wonderful oil tasting experience here was blown away by the range and tastes of the oils, tapenades and the olives themselves. I CANNOT wait to try out the amazing fennel and the dill flavoured oils, and the truffle oil is a dream. Anyone looking to start to enjoy olive oil cannot go wrong with their delicate light oil. Thank you so much to the charming and welcoming family we had a wonderful time and I only wish we lived closer I would ONLY buy your olive oil.
