Morgenster is a 300 year old estate which once formed part of Vergelegen. It was first purchased by French Huguenot, Jacques Malan in 1711. He named the farm and 14 years later passed it down to his only surviving son Daniel who had 13 children.

The wine cellar, farm house and outbuildings were passed down to his son Jacobus whose widow constructed the six famed Cape Dutch gables on the house, including one of the greatest examples of the holbol style. The morning star from the homesteadís front gable is now featured on the labels of the estateís wines and olive oils.

In 1991, Giulio Bertrand bought the farm and together with architect Revel Fox, he renovated Morgenster. He also planted extensive olive groves of Italian olive varieties and vineyards of red Bordeaux and Italian grape varieties, and built a modern cellar. Bertrand releases his wines in stages to showcase their progression and visitors to his stylish tasting room on the banks of a dam overlooking the Helderberg can enjoy a unique vertical tasting of several vintages of the same label.

For over 10 years Morgensterís olive oils have been judged as being among the best olive oils in the world, and visitors can also enjoy an oil tasting of intriguing complexity.
