In 1843 Willem Lategan planted the first vines on this historic farm in the Breede River Valley where the Drakenstein and Hex River Mountains meet. Six generations later the Lategan family still follows their forefathers' proud tradition of quality and progress.

Bergsig Estate comprises more than 250 hectares planted with vines, making it one of the largest in Southern Africa. Its unique climate and large variety of soils ensure the production of wines of exceptional quality and unique character. The climate is created by a narrow strip of the Breede River Valley flanked on either side by the towering mountain peaks. The basin boasts a rich combination of alluvial soils of the Breede and Wagenboom Rivers and the Redhill soils of Kleinberg.

The mountain slopes cradling the Estate are home to indigenous fynbos and a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Winters are cold with an average rainfall of 1 015 mm. The summers with their abundance of sunshine are temperate and dry.

Modern viticultural methods are applied throughout the vineyards. The sole purpose is to produce superior wines. In the cellar, too, the latest technology ensures perfection. Tried and tested French winemaking traditions are maintained and continually refined. Only the best selected oak barrels are imported for the maturation of the white wines, red wines and port.
