CELLAR

Bramon Wine Estate was established in the year 2000, where the first Sauvignon Blanc grapes where planted. Bramon started out with just a couple of hectares and has grown to 23 hectares in total, with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir planted.

Bramon Wine Estate is the furthest easterly vineyard in the Western Cape. In 2005 Bramon applied to the wine and spirit board to have Plettenberg Bay region declared a Wine of Origin Region. A team of professionals ranging from Soil Scientists, viticulturists through to Wine Makers visited the region to study all aspects of the area to see if it qualified for Wine of Origin status. The team made a recommendation as the region met all criteria and it was Gazetted later in 2006 as a Wine of Origin District (not ward, a ward is a portion of a district). In 2007 more vineyards where established in the region and to date there are 21 registered vineyards in the Plett area with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as the main cultivars.

The Bramon Wine Estate cellar was completed in December 2010. This marks 2011 as the first official wine-making year in the history of Plettenberg Bay. Their Winemaker is excited about the full spectrum of flavours from different pockets of vineyards in the Plettenberg Bay area ranging from capsicum and the typical green aromas of Sauvignon Blanc to tropical pineapple, passion fruit and gooseberry.
