Table Bay Merlot

Table Bay stands as a beacon of exceptional South African wines, renowned for their outstanding quality.

The wine is sourced wines from vineyards situated along the cool west coast of South Africa and the fertile region of Breedekloof.

Nestled within the vibrant tapestry of South African wine-making, these regions benefit from unique terroirs and climatic conditions – granite and sandstone soils, a Mediterranean climate of dry, warm summers – that contribute to the distinct character of these wines.

About the Producer

Bergsig Estate

Bergsig Estate is situated in the Breedkloof area of Breede River Valley in South Africa, about 110km from Cape Town. This is where the Drakenstein and Hex River Mountains meet, creating such a scenic surrounding 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 estate. In 1843 Willem Hendrik Lategan moved to Bergsig, founding the winery. Seven generations later the proud tradition continues.

Bergsig has been in the family for more than 170 years. The Bergsig ethos is, “future generations are the inheritors of this estate and therefore sustainable farming methods are priority.” The motto that “wine that doesn’t cost the earth” resounds within the family. Being an Estate, all the wines are “grown, made and bottled” on the property.

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.
