A Tradition of Quality
Heritage Wines That Tell a Story
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 and seven generations later, the proud tradition of winemaking continues.
Bergsig has been in the family for almost 200 years. The Bergsig ethos is “future generations are the inheritors of this estate and therefore sustainable farming methods are a priority.” The motto that “wine that doesn’t cost the earth” resounds within the family. Being an estate, all the grapes are grown in our own vineyards, and all wines are produced and bottled on the property.
The wine estate Bergsig, meaning MountainView in Afrikaans, has been owned and operated by the Lategan family since 1843. As a sixth-generation Lategan, De Wet aims to continue their “Tradition of Quality”.
What Our Guests Say
Nice winetasting we came from the Bainskloof pass and noticed the Bergsig winery signs. We used to drink the Bergsig chardonnay at home so decided to have a tasting. Friendly service and several winetasting options. We chose the option of the winepairing with fricadels (meatballs) and the tasting with springrolls. I don't think the pairing always worked but it was interesting as we also had the tasting of there top wines and they had a free option to have a tasting of chardonnays , 6 vintages, next to each other and same for pinotage. Great way to discover the differences. We bought a few of the wines to drink on our trip. They also had al little Deli shop with local produce.
Great Wine 2nd time at that I have tasted wine there, was great, many accolades and service was very friendly and the lady serving knew the wines well. Make a stop there...you many just be surprised. Very nice. Thanks...
Lunch and wine-tasting Even though it says free wi-fi no-one knows the password. Vegetable soup actually had pieces of meat in it. As a vegetarian I find this unacceptable. Will never go back
A pleasant pitstop My partner and I were on our way to Aquila and decided to get wine along the way. The staff were welcoming and exceptionally friendly. It was an absolute pleasure to visit.
Looking for a lunch venue. We were on our way to Tulbagh on a wet and cold day, and in bad need of something warm in our tummies, when we spotted the sign on the road side announcing Bergsig Bistro, so turned in and found one of the gems of the region. I ordered the venison pie and chips, and my wife chose a bobotie crepe and salad, and we combined our meal with a wine tasting (4 wines = R20.00), which turned out to be just what the doctor ordered! Both meals were fantastic, and the wine excellent. We ended our meal in the comfy lounge sofas provided with coffee, and I with Malva pudding and ice cream, and my wife with a lemon square - both very excellent. This is a well worthwhile stop for wine tasting and a light meal. The Bistro is beautifully clean and tastefully furnished, and the service polite and friendly. After your meal you can buy wine and local delicacies at the attached shop
Morning Coffee Dropped in with a guest from America after driving him through the Slanghoek Valley and what a pleasant surprise. A little oasis in the middle of nowhere just off the R43 on the way to Ceres - well worth a visit. Lovely view of the Bainskloof pass from the east and the food and service were excellent We did not participate but the have made provision for children, cellar tours and bird watching and do conferences and guess what the have a "gramophone" _see photo
Lekker Nice little bistro. The real valie however lies in the excellent wine. Any of their wines is recommended. My favoured is Touriga Nacional.
wine tasting and meal Been there many time and the wine tasting has always been amazingly presented - staff have always needed a little more training - but the last time there hugely disappointed all round - lack the finesse - no presentation and my guest as well and please pull your socks back up -
The wines make this trip worthwhile Classy room with farms long family history. Great value wines and old style quality. Award winning wines.The road from Worcester is good. We will be regular customers. Food pairings are unusual and well paired.
