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. With its world renowned handcrafted wines, history spanning over 300 years, heritage, exquisite gardens and refined cuisine, 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. We invite you to experience the world of Vergelegen first-hand.

The Vergelegen Estate is undoubtedly a beautiful historical estate, one of the best to visit in the Boland. We visit the estate a few time a year. It revamped its wine-tasting facilities and added a bistro restaurant, The Stables, which offers a spectacular view on...More

The GVBs were very good. The service was personalised and the gardens were magnificent. Better than most wines we have tried to date.

Always a beautiful spot to visit! And what a fantastic meal. We always have the spectacular scones but we tried the Lamb Shank and what a delicious meal. We ended it off with the lemon meringue! Most definitely a must have meal.

A beautiful setting to enjoy some good wine and walk around a historic property. The wine tasting was pleasant although less informative than others that I have experienced. They do not waive the tasting fee if you purchase wine, which is becoming commonplace with other...More
