About The Harvest

Additional Information

“Tant Anna Lategan (‘Aunty Anna’) was a woman of formidable generosity. Known throughout the Breedekloof Wine Valley for her kindness and hospitable nature, Tant Anna’s place in the Lategan family, and at Bergsig, remains revered.
This Chardonnay resembles her character: generous, open and friendly.”
