Bramon Wines is a boutique wine estate (250 ton cellar) named after Peter and Caroline Thorpe’s children, Bram and Manon, and is the first and only estate this far east of the Western Cape, situated 20km East of Plettenberg Bay in a mountainous area called The Crags.
This family run estate has broken new ground by pioneering vineyards in the Plettenberg Bay area, producing an award winning Methode Cap Classique sparkling wine and now a beautiful still Sauvignon Blanc “The Crags” has added to the range.
Having grown up on a wine farm in Worcester, Peter had an inherent passion for wine and working the land. On discovering a piece of land in The Crags with gentle slopes and cool sea breezes, Peter found the conditions excellent for vine growth. The first vines, Sauvignon Blanc, were planted in 2000, pioneering wine growth in Plettenberg Bay which has subsequently been classified as a Wine of Origin region. A coup for the area! Having paved the way for 18 other wine farms in the area, Peter Thorpe hopes to create a ‘Sparkling Wine Route’ – adding yet another facet to the Jewel of The Garden Route.
