We have visited the other wine farms up the road from Morgenster on various occasions and somehow managed to overlook this gem The wine and olive oil tasting was delicious , as well as very informative and enjoyable . The olives and other olive products are excellent and well worth the visit and its own . The wine has a... More

We had been turned away from here before so we did our homework and saw that they stop serving anything at 4:30 as they close promptly at 5:00. No problem. We rush to get there and walk through the door at 4:25 high-diving each other because we made it before the cut off. The seeming manager decided that they were... More

Olive oil tasting reasonably priced. Very informative. Well presented. Wine tasting paired with Olive oil tasting. Good choice. Food at the restaurant very disappointing. Had the lamb chops. Tasteless and no use of spices at all. Pricing testing the upper limits of reasonableness.

Third time being turned away before 4.30pm (official last tasting). The German lady at the door is most rude and their tasting times vary at their own discretion - seems it depends on how busy the day has been... therefore 4.30pm last tasting is really an estimate. I will NEVER be back after continuous encounters with bad management!!

What a great experience. We have been wanting to visit for many years. And being in Strand it shouldn't have been a problem...but...today was the day. We were welcomed by David a delightful young man. He took care of us...gave us such an interesting background and a bit of history of how Morgenster came into being. We throughly enjoyed our...

We visited the Morgenster Wine and Olive farm at the insistence of my sister and her husband ( who are both teetotaller, I might add) We were fortunate enough to meet the absolutely delightful Giulio, who is the owner and to be taken around by him. He is justly proud of his beautifully run and positioned farm , which is... More

This was a delightful lunch, with excellent red wine from the wine farm. The grilled Norwegian salmon was cooked perfectly to order, and the chicken breast baked in white wine and mushrooms was delicious. The chicken was served piping hot right through the breast, something I have not had in a long time - excellent. Food served on warm plates.... More

We went here on a whim and had 2 lovely tastings. One was Italian and accompanied by chocolates which were made to go together. Astoundingly we really noticed how flavor changed especially between the cinnamon chocolate and the chili one both with one wine. Interesting, different and fun. They also produce olives and do 4 oil tastings which we did... More

We stopped on our way to Hermanus from Cape Town and we're very glad we did. We made a new discovery - that there's not only wine tasting but olive oil tasting! What a great experience this was. The crackers and bread to clear the palate after each taste of a different olive oil were great, (& also delicious when... More

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
