When you think of the wine route in South Africa, you picture all the beautiful wine estates in and around Cape Town, from Franschhoek to Darling and Robertson to Constantia. The Garden Route is also home to a wine estate and Bramon Wine Estate is the first of its kind so far east from Cape Town.
Bramon is a boutique wine estate about 20km’s from Plettenberg Bay in an area called the Crags, which overlooks the Tsitsikamma Mountains. If you lucky you may also see an elephant in the very distance.
Bramon Wine Estate is famous for their flagship Sauvignon Blanc wine (which is called the Crags), wine tasting and their picnic style lunches amongst the vineyards. You tick off from a selection of salads, dips and pates, meats, fish, cheeses and preserves. What ever you choose is accompanied by the most delicious loaf of homemade rosemary plaited bread.
On my recent visit to Bramon, we opted for the avo and roasted parmesan salad, spinach and feta cigars, camembert and prawn cigars. The camembert comes oozing with creaminess, richness and crunch. Picture dipping the fresh bread into this goodness, and you have a winner! It is the most delicious dish. If there was something I could live on for the rest of my life, it would be the camembert dish with the bread … Delish! 🙂
THE ONE REASON TO VISIT BRAMON WINE ESTATE:
The setting is among the vineyards with the mountains in the background and it is beyond beautiful.
Oh yes, and the camembert cheese. So that makes it two reasons!
