The good news is out. In the recently launched 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide only four Pinot Noir wines boast the prestigious five-star rating and the Creation Art of Pinot Noir 2016 is among them! Commenting on the achievement Creation co-owner and marketing director Carolyn Martin says: “We’re delighted with this significant accolade coming from what must be South Africa’s most influential wine guide. It certainly bolsters the estate’s proud track record for Pinot.”

Here are a few comments recently made by our visitors:
“Returned after seven years to one of our favourite spots to celebrate a delayed anniversary and birthdays. The “Story of Creation” pairing-menu wants to tell the whole story and boy was it living up to expectations. The wine pairing is worth the extra cost, and for seven courses it’s a treat. In the beautiful valley, this is a must do. Many thanks to Leo, our host.” – Nils N (TripAdvisor)
“We enjoyed a lunch with guests from San Francisco – relaxed, friendly, great ambiance and what outstanding service from Inge and Brenda! The starter and main course were outstanding in presentation and taste, with wonderful choices of wines paired to the taste experience. Unfortunately the desserts were not quite so successful – somewhat over complicated and disappointing. The management accepted our critique professionally, with interest and integrity – the mark of a truly professional team. Of course the wines are all good. We will definitely be back, there are few places as enjoyable, and in such a magnificent setting.” – Michael O (TripAdvisor)
