Creation Wines is proud to participate in the 2015 AfrAsia Cape Wine Auction (CWA), a global showcase of South Africa’s finest wines and the country’s most prestigious wine brands, in aid of the Cape Wine Auction Trust.
The glamorous event, which raised more than R7 m last year, will be held over two days: 13 February with a barrel tasting of inspirational wines at The Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden in Paradyskloof, Stellenbosch, followed by the auction on 14 February at Boschendal Estate. This initiative will provide bidders with the opportunity to support education within underprivileged communities in the Cape Winelands. Various charities, including the Pebbles Project and Mad Charity will benefit from the proceeds generated by a selection of rare auction items across 34 lots.
The Creation Wines Lot includes an incredible seven days for four people in a gorgeous private villa on the beautiful Greek island of Skiathos in the northwest Aegean, the ideal place to explore the nearby archipelago.
Perched high on the picturesque Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, Creation is a little piece of paradise. The winning bidder will meet Creation’s cellarmaster, Jean-Claude Martin, for a private barrel tasting and vineyard tour. Included are Creation’s award-winning Food and Wine Pairing, Tea and Canapé Pairing and Wine and Chocolate Pairing.
The lot incorporates a five-star dinner served with Creation wines at the new luxurious private dining room of the state-of-the-art Bona Dea Wedding Estate and Orchid & Protea Farm. The five-course meal will be prepared by Creation’s executive chef, Warwick Taylor, and hosted by the Martin family from Creation and the Johnson family from Bona Dea.
Included in the lot is also two nights’ accommodation for two at the majestic five-star Arabella Hotel & Spa.
Working hand in hand with nature, Creation recently pledged their support to the Landmark Foundation and is now one of only four farms in the surrounding Overberg area that is officially predator friendly. The successful bidder will experience an exclusive walk and talk with experts in the field of leopard conservation.
What’s more, the lot includes an exhilarating marine experience, hosted by Dyer Island Cruises, during which guests will have a chance to get close to the spectacular marine wildlife of the Cape Whale Coast.
Last but not least is a superb collection of Creation wines:
Six bottles of The Art of Creation Pinot Noir 2013;
Six bottles of The Art of Creation Chardonnay 2013;
A three-litre bottle of the award-winning, five-star Creation Reserve Pinot Noir 2013 will be matured for the winner of the bid in the Creation cellar.
