Background

History

Vergelegen is renowned for producing elegant, handcrafted wines and has a widely respected reputation for environmental and sustainable practices. The Estate was purchased by Anglo American in 1987, who drew up a detailed master plan for the development of the vineyards. The first new vines were planted in 1989. The vineyards are today planted with classic white & red varietals and since 1999 the Estate has earned more than 200 Awards.

Regional info

The climate at Somerset West is mild due to the close proximity to the chilly Atlantic Ocean. The vineyard ranges in altitude between 140-310m asl, with slopes facing north to north-west and south to south-east. The estate boasts a rich array of 21 soil types, some of which are among the most ancient viticultural soils in the world. They are characterised by a high clay content ensuring good water retention, critical during the early-summer ripening stage.
