Vergelegen – Best New World Winery
Congratulations to our neighbours and friends at Vergelegen.
Wine Enthusiast, one of the big 2 wine magazines in the USA, has chosen South Africa’s Vergelegen as New World Winery of the Year.
South Africa, ahead of Australia, California, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina?
Wow! Times are a’changing.
Vergelegen (and the unsquashable Andre van Rensburg) makes a wide range of wines from a small number of varieties, chiefly from their own vineyards.
Most renowned are the red blends and the tiny volume of single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, called Schaapenburg.
Don’t miss a visit to Vergelegen on your next trip to South Africa.
