First of all: a huge thank you to all our supporters who voted Creation the winner of Klink’s ‘Great Pairings’ category for 2017. The winners were announced on Friday 31 March and Creation is delighted to have won this distinction for the fourth time! As a pioneer in the field of wine and food pairing our estate offers no less than eight pairing options with an exciting new concept aptly named ‘The Story of Creation’ to be introduced soon. When it comes to wine and food pairing, there’s always something new and unique in the Creation pipeline!
Since 2015, Tim Atkin MW and Samantha O’Keefe of Lismore Estate Vineyards in Greyton have arranged tastings where the best of South African wines are put up next to some leading examples from the rest of the world to facilitate discussion. The most recent event featuring Pinot Noir took place on 25 March and we’re proud to report that the 2015 Creation Art of Pinot Noir featured among the overall top ten! Click here to read more.

This year’s Hermanus FynArts takes place from 9 to 18 June and promises to be a feast of exhibitions, presentations, performances, workshops, films and of course food and wine. According to Creation co-owner and marketing director Carolyn Martin the Creation team looks forward to partaking in this annual event, offering not only an art exhibition but also a magnificent spread of food and wine.
“Fine winemaking is of course an art in itself and as dedicated supporters of the arts, we are proud to participate in this joyous festival again,” says Carolyn.
Hermanus FynArts is hosted in assorted venues in and around the coastal town of Hermanus – one of them being Creation Wines where the estate will be exhibiting a truly exciting installation of sculptures by the acclaimed artist Willie Botha. Click here to read more about Willie and his work.
A highlight of Creation’s participation will be a three-course dinner specially prepared by the Creation Culinary Team to harmonize with three of Creation’s award-winning wines.

What an absolute delight to have taken my guests to Creation Wines! The ambiance and flair with which we were entertained made this a most memorable experience in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. The wines, immaculate service and exquisite cuisine intertwined with the glamorous owner Carolyn. Make a visit to Creation a top priority when in the Cape.
– Tertia B (TripAdvisor review)
We just loved this young and vibrant, award-winning estate. Highly recommended. We didn’t have lunch, only the wine tasting and chocolate pairing. You may not leave here without tasting the THE ART wines.

The wine estate is found in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley which translates to “Heaven and Earth”. And it delivers nothing short. Beautiful gardens and views. But the 8 course tapas food and wine pairing is a must. Each course was a culinary experience and paired with the wine – I was left nothing short of simply wowed. Service was brilliant and our waitrons’ knowledge of the wines and food was impressive. I will certainly return. Must must must do!!
