About The Producer

Bergsig Estate

  • Bergsig Estate

    Bergsig Estate is situated in the Breedkloof area of Breede River Valley in South Africa, about 110 km from Cape Town. This is where the Drakenstein and Hex River Mountains meet, creating such scenic surroundings that the farm was named “Bergsig”, meaning “mountain view”.

    The Lategan Family’s roots in the South African winelands began in 1735 when Johann Hermann Lategan settled in the Wamakers Valley near the current Bergsig Estate. In 1843 Willem Hendrik Lategan moved to Bergsig. Seven generations later, the proud tradition continues.

    Bergsig has been in the family for more than 170 years. The Bergsig ethos is, “future generations are the inheritors of this estate and therefore sustainable farming methods are priority.” The motto that “wine that doesn’t cost the earth” resounds within the family. Being an Estate, all the wines are “grown, made and bottled” on the property.

    The company combines modern equipment with a natural approach to wine making. The aim is to capture the unique terroir of the estate in wines that are complex though elegant.
