Afrikan Ridge is part of the Bergsig Estate that is situated, about 110 km from Cape Town. This is where the Drakenstein and Hex River Mountains meet, creating such scenic surroundings that the farm was named “Bergsig”, meaning “mountain view”.
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. Seven generations later, the proud tradition continues.
The company combines modern equipment with a natural approach to wine making. The aim is to capture the unique terroir of the estate in wines that are complex though elegant.
