I met up with the winemaker Anton Smal and MD, Dannie who filled me in on some history of the estate.
Bramon (named after the children of the founders of the wine estate, Braam and Amon) are the pioneers for successfully farming vineyards in the Plettenberg Bay area with the cellar established in 2010. Today there are 16 wineries in the Plettenberg Bay Winelands following suit.
“Peter Thorpe hopes to create a ‘Sparkling Wine Route’ – adding yet another facet to the Jewel of The Garden Route.”
The Wines & the Food
Wines to taste: A Sauvignon Blanc MCC, Chardonnay MCC, Sauvignon Blanc, Demi-sec white and a Rosé. The Bramon MCC range is called Bramon and their still range is called The Crags, after the sub-region in which these wines are made. The restaurant menu consists of a large variety of mezze platters to share with family and friends alike.
Oh wow what a view! Sit amongst the vines outside or cosy up to a fireplace indoors.
