Bramon Wine Estate, the first and only Estate this far East of the Western Cape, is situated 20km East of Plettenberg Bay in a mountainous area called The Crags. This family-owned and 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 wine The Crags has added to the range. 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
15 other wine farms in the region, Peter Thorpe hopes to create a ‘Sparkling Wine Route’ - adding yet another facet to the Jewel of The Garden Route.
Bramon Wines is a boutique vineyard of 5ha and named after Peter and Caroline Thorpe's children, Bram and Manon. 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 land was choked with wattle, gum and pine and needed to be cleared of all alien invasives to make way for what is now today a well manicured vineyard.
Brass Monkey (ex-the Lord Burleigh), Victoria
The name change and refurb a few years back don't seem to have hurt this now rather modern drinking establishment. The exterior is quite a pleasant shade of green and the nice bay window remains, but the inside is more trendy bar than traditional pub. Still, the food menu looks reasonable enough, if a bit more upmarket, and its just far enough away from Victoria Station to mostly avoid the excess of afterwork drinkers. There's a couple of beers on the taps and a rather inexpensive wine list. If you don't mind a few fumes, there's tables on the pavement, particularly if the weather's nice. It's obviously doing something right, as it's still going strong.
