More About Morgenster Estate
For 300 years Morgenster has attracted and inspired people through its blend of beautiful surroundings, excellent terrior and a manor house recognized as one of the great houses of the Western Cape. Morgenster Estate owner, Giulio Bertrand, maintains a lifelong philosophy of producing only the highest quality products in line with his motto: "Where there is passion there is no compromise". He built a long-term partnership with the Olive Oil Research Institute of Italy from where he imports the world's most renowned olive tree varieties and leading production technology.
The trees are propagated in the Morgenster nursery and are then sold to local farms to advance the local olive industry. This has given South Africa a competitive edge and the Estate continues to garner coveted local and international awards. Past awards have included "Best Blended Olive Oil in the world" and "Mill of the year" at L'Extravergine and most recently the ''Made with Love'' Farm award in the 2014 Flos Olei Guide with a farm rating of 98/100.
