We came here years ago and wanted to try again. Was still amazing this time around! We tried the oils and bought a few bottles for back home. Even got 2 jars of olives to enjoy in SA. Tip: get a table on the terrace for the wonderful views!

My wife and I chose different collections to try and we were duly served with five glasses each with a separate wine and a jug of water and water glasses. We were taken through our individual selections by a young women and we were impressed with the effort they put in (we were at Kleine Zalze earlier in the week... More

Wine tasting is a favourite past-time. To that add olive oil tasting. A selection of 5 olive oils, followed by a wine tasting, all produced on the farm, and introduced by the informative assistant, who shared his enthusiasm for food and wine. Set in exquisite surroundings with spectacular views, the terrace overlooking the dam was an ideal venue.

I tasted some of the Morgenster wines at an Italian restaurant in Wilderness on a recent visit. I was very impressed and decided to visit the farm. We visited Morgenster on Saturday 4 February. We booked a table at the restaurant and wanted to do a wine tasting beforehand. When we arrived there was a tour group leaving and it... More

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
