Bramon Wine Estate

Traveling down the Garden Route the other day we stopped at Bramon Wine Estate at The Crags just outside Plettenberg Bay. Bramon was the first wine estate this far east of the Cape Winelands and produces a superior Sauvignon Blanc 'cap classique' sparkling wine.


The beauty of Bramon is that the seating for their restaurant is set in the vineyards and visitors can enjoy local wines with cheeses, meats, oysters, pates and homemade bread with the majestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the background.

  1. Now that's Al Fresco at its best! I couldn't think of a better place to sit and have a nice, ice cold glass of wine, with some tasty titbits and good conversation! My kind of place! :)

  5. Glad to hear that the wine tasted good. Funny how I have never tasted bad wine at the wine farms I have visited. Must be in the mind.

    I like the setting and mountains as a backdrop. The wine route is only 3 hours away (give or take) so a tour may be a pleasant alternative to other destinations.
