Wine Leaders' Choice

Somerset West, South Africa​


Vergelegen – no ordinary Estate. Founded on 1 February 1700, Vergelegen (meaning “situated far away”), has been under the ownership of some of the world’s great explorers and visionaries, each of whom, in their own way, have helped shape Vergelegen to what it is today: a world-class Estate.

Today, this most prestigious and awarded wine estate offers its 100 000 annual visitors a unique combination of heritage, environment and hospitality, while standing at the forefront of South Africa’s recent wine renaissance. With its world renowned handcrafted wines, history spanning over 300 years, it comes as no surprise that Vergelegen continues to be the choice of the discerning visitor seeking a total sensory experience.

For this reason, the Estate has borne witness to many visits of heads of state and celebrities from all over the world. Think of Vergelegen to spend quality time on your own, with your family and friends or business associates – wine tasting centre and cellar tours, Camphors at Vergelegen Signature Restaurant, Stables at Vergelegen Bistro Restaurant and the Picnic, are only a few of a myriad of enjoyable activities at Vergelegen.
