Wines

Vergelegen has received numerous local and international accolades for the quality of its wines.  When Anglo American acquired the property in 1987, the wine-making and viticulture team took an entire year exploring the Estate, digging more than 3000 holes to analyse soil profiles and moving weather stations around before agreeing on an optimum terrain on which to establish its vineyards. 

Since the production of its first wine in 1992, Vergelgen Estate and its wines have earned more than 200 awards, including winning the coveted Chateau Pichon Longueville Trophy twice for the Best Bordeaux Blend at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
