Vergelegen Wines

Stellenbosch Wine Routes


Vergelegen means "situated far away", because when it was founded in 1700 it took days to reach the farm from Cape Town. It has been under the ownership of some of the world's great explorers and visionaries, each of whom have shaped the estate to become a world-class destination. Its current owner, AngloAmerican, purchased the property in 1987. The wine team is headed by Andre van Rensburg, who joined Vergelegen in 1998. Today, Vergelegen is the sum of its wines, history and heritage spanning over 300 years, landscaped gardens and cuisine.
