We arrived at Morgenster early in the morning on a cold and rainy day. From the minute we walked in, we felt like royalty. They had a roaring log fire burning, and we sat inside next to the fire on a very comfortable couch. We did a very well informed wine tasting and then had the olive and olive oil... More

Morgenster Tasting room is a wonderful outing for the whole family to enjoy. The Olive oil tasting is especially one that opens the mind to fascinating aspects of local agriculture that South Africans can be proud of. The tastings are the perfect balance of personal and professional. One feels relaxed but at the same time well taken care of. The... More

Very unfriendly staff After being ignored for a while when we came in and waited to be seated a very stuck up old lady came over and at a very unwelcoming unpleasant manner told us that it was not possible to do the olive tasting. Even though we checked the opening hours on the internet they were closed. Because of... More

My family and I visited Morgenster Estate because we had been at neighboring Vergelegen. We opted for the wine and the olive oil tasting. It was our first time tasting olive oil - although we learnt some interesting things, this did not suit our tastes, but that is a personal preference; it may have been better if they had not...

Every year we visit Morgenster Personally it's one of my favourite wine farms The olive oil tasting is great (I feel I should be so knowledgeable now) and the wines are really good The Tosca Italians and the Morgenster Reserve are particularly good The Caruso rose is easy drinking and the NU sav blanc is excellent value for palate and...

Visited the Morgenster Wine and Olive Farm as part of a Wine tasting tour Organised by African Bushveld Tours & Safari. It was a pleasant surprise to taste the variety of Olive oils produce along with the various olive pastes. My wife and I found the Lemon flavoured Olive oil an actual delight. There were also many excellent wines demonstrated,... More

I agree with others, the wine tasting is lovely but the olive oil and olive tasting is extraordinary! If you're lucky, you could spend the morning or the afternoon sitting in front of their beautiful fireplace learning about olives and olive oil and tasting their incredible products. If you are from the States, do buy the truffle and lemon flavored... More

The lady who guided us through the olive tasting has a real passion for olive oil & cuisine, and her knowledge on the subject was extensive. This passion made the whole experience not only informative but very enjoyable. We didn't have time to do the wine this time, but I am led to believe this is worthwhile doing. I would... More

The wines are lovely, but the highlight is the olive and olive oil tasting, defn worth the extra cost , and amazing view from both inside and on the veranda. Inside the cool Aircon is welcome on sweltering summer days
