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 Estate is situated in the Breede River Valley in South Africa. This is where the Drakenstein and Hex River Mountains meet, creating such scenic surroundings that the farm was named “Bergsig”, meaning “mountain view”. 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.”
