Morgenhof Wine Estate

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

This beautiful Cape Dutch estate, with a history stretching back 300 years, lies in the lee of a steep hill covered with vines and pine trees. In 1993 Morgenhof was acquired by Anne Cointreau of Cognac, France, who spared no expense in making this a showpiece estate with a lovely rose garden on top of the working underground cellar. The estate has a talented winemaker, Jacques Cilliers, and some distinguished wines. Try the chardonnay with a fresh coconut nose and hints

of lime, or the smoky, somewhat Burgundian Pinotage. The estate's flagship wine is the wonderful Premiére Sélection, a Bordeaux blend. Morgenhof is an excellent place to stop for a simple lunch of homemade soup and freshly baked bread. Reservations are advisable in summer.
