Bramon, named after Peter and Caroline Thorpe’s children Bram and Manon, is the only wine estate this far east of the Western Cape! This family-owned and run estate has broken new ground pioneering vineyards in the Plettenberg Bay area since 2000. With their award winning sparkling wine and still wines, the success of Bramon’s vineyard has brought a plethora of new vineyards to the area.
Bramon consists of a Cellar, Restaurant and Tasting Centre all open daily. The Restaurant and Cellar also caters for tailor made functions and weddings.
The wines can be tasted at the Estates ever-popular restaurant, set in the vineyards overlooking the Elephant Sanctuary and Tsitsikamma Mountains. Langorous lunches, with piping hot homemade breads, and delicate mezze treats of meats, pates, organic salads, soups and oysters rounded off with decadent homemade desserts makes an afternoon a pleasure and treat. Their exciting range of Vukani BEE wines showcases award winning wines whilst educating previously disadvantaged people in viticulture and wine making in the area. What more could one want from The Garden Route!
