The roof, the roof...

Posted on October 13, 2016 by Nikki Friedman

...the roof is gone! We've been very hard at work creating a special new experience at Môreson. 

In place of the old orchid hothouse we're creating a space that opens up and lets the mountains spill in. A space for tastings, events, and yes, another secret project which will soon be revealed. Stay posted kids.

We've brought some Môreson whimsy into our de-gorging and bottling stations. 

Don't you think it's, ahem, de-gorgeous?

MCC is good for you

Posted on September 21, 2016 by Nikki Friedman

Why? We thought you'd never ask:

1. Drinking three glasses of champagne every week is said to help prevent the onset of dementia.
2. MCC is rich in polyphenols, which are antioxidants that can lower blood pressure and help your heart. Dosage: two glasses a day.
3. Studies have shown that people who drink wine live longer than people who drink beer or spirits.

Wines to try this spring

Posted on September 02, 2016 by Nikki Friedman

We asked our winemaker Clayton Reabow for his pick of spring wines

"Recently rated 90 points in Decanter, this wine is a fresh take on the traditional Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend."

Môreson Dr Reason Why Chardonnay 2015


"An unwooded Chardonnay fresh enough to rival any Sauvignon blanc with sufficient depth, body and mouthfeel to be mistaken for a wooded wine."

Môreson Mercator 2014


"Rated 91 points in South African Chardonnay report. New release Mercator 2014 has matured for 1 year in bottle and now delivering Môreson's hallmark character of pineapple, pear, lemon and lime. A perfect spring wine."
