Wine Farm for sale in Plettenberg Bay
Bespoke Wine Estate
Here is a rare opportunity to become part of new history being made: Bramon Wine Estate, the premier wine farm established in the Plettenberg Bay /The Crags district, has become available for sale. Not only were the first vines in the area planted on Bramon in 2000, but also the first wine cellar built there. This might have seemed a dream project at the time, piloting an entire wine route in the region, but has proven to be successful and well founded. The wines and MCC sparkling wines produced on Bramon are winning big awards. This is history, and it could become yours.
The 17ha estate is rurally situated in The Crags with the Buffels River forming a natural southern and eastern border. True to the name of the district the river has wonderful crags and a truly spectacular waterfall, which is part of the special beauty of the estate. Plettenberg Bay with schools and retail centres is only ten minutes away.
The farm is currently planted to approximately 5,2 ha Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, all trellised and under drip irrigation. Although Bramon has water rights from the river, the two farm dams on the property supply all the water requirements.
A newly constructed state-of-the-art wine cellar, with a capacity of 250tons, is fully equipped and produces award winning still wines as well as the much spoken of Méthode Cap Classique range of sparkling wines. The cellar complex includes a laboratory, water filtration and sterilisation facilities, restrooms, tasting area and wine maker's office.
The main homestead is contemporary in design and comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cook's kitchen and wonderful indoor/outdoor entertainment areas with spectacular views of the waterfall in the Buffels River. The Tsitsikamma Mountains and indigenous forests form a backdrop to this view.
Further accommodation is provided by a 200m2 T&B log home and bachelor's flat, set close to but high above the river, and also commanding a splendid view across the crags.
Amongst the vines is the tasting room and popular, well-appointed 200 seater restaurant. The Estate is offered for sale as a going concern together with the Bramon brand, all restaurant furnishings, wine cellar and farm equipment.
