The Company
Morgenster Wine & Olive Estate in Somerset West outside Cape Town has over 50 hectares of olive groves covering 17 different Italian varieties. “Where there is quality there is no compromise” is the guiding principle of owner Giulio Bertrand who imported 2000 olive trees covering 14 cultivars from the north to the south and the islands of Italy and established them in his nursery. Around 75% of the trees in South Africa and the most up to date oil extraction plant technology, harvesting and pruning equipment and production expertise come from Morgenster. In August 2012 the SA Olive Association honoured Giulio Bertrand with a Life Time Achiever trophy for his contribution towards revolutionising the local industry.

The Products

Morgenster extra virgin olive oil is a secret blend of at least 14 Italian varieties and contains less than 0.3% fatty acids, the result of being produced by continuous extraction of high quality olives using a state-of-the-art Pieralisi press. To maintain the integrity of its olive oil Morgenster bottles it in dark bottles to protect the product against light. Nitrogen is added to protect against oxidation and bottles are sealed with a tamper proof pourer that does not permit the bottles to be refilled. Bottles also feature a best before date of 18 months, which although conservative, is Morgenster’s commitment to the consumer to ensure they enjoy its oils at their freshest.
