Description

Our estate has been in the Lategan-family since 1843, when our original patriarch, Willem Hendrik Lategan made a decision to start a life here at the foot of the mountain.
Seven generations, and 176 years later, we still till the soil, we still plant vines and we still make our award-winning wines.
Bergsig Estate is situated in one of South Africa’s most picturesque wine valleys: the Breedekloof Wine Valley.At Bergsig we recognise this gift of nature, which is why conservation is a strong focus of the estate. We are IPW certified, meaning we embrace environmentally friendly farming methods. Over 437 hectares of mountain, river and valley terrain on our estate is protected and eliminated of alien species.
