95 on Morgenster – Winter 2016

On a dark and miserable Sunday morning we made our way to Morgenster Olive and Wine Farm in Somerset West.

This would be our second visit to Morgenster Farm, as previously we had the pleasure of experiencing their Award winning Olive Oil and Wine Tasting in their stunning tasting room.

During the time of our last visit 95 on Morgenster was still being built and we promised we would be back and I am so glad we did. Ann, Lelanie, Chef Jaryd and all the staff at 95 on Morgenster certainly didn’t disappoint.

The moment we entered the doors, we immediately forgot about the miserable cold Winter’s day and were made to feel like one of the family.

The food and service was excellent and the venue even on a horrible Winter’s day is amazing. We cannot wait for Summer, it’s going to be epic.
