Since its inception more than a decade ago, Creation Wines on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge near Hermanus has always lived up to its evocative name.“The name is not only a tribute to the riches Mother Nature has bestowed upon our beautiful farm, it is also a reference to the soils which had never been planted to vines before, and last but not least it is a promise of constant innovation,” says Creation co-owner and marketing director, Carolyn Martin.
Working hand in hand with Nature, the Creation team once again proved their commitment to conservation by recently pledging their support to the Landmark Foundation. “We’re proud to announce that we are now officially predator friendly,” says Carolyn. Creation is one of only four farms in the surrounding Overberg area to gain this status and to celebrate a magnificent sculpture was unveiled at Creation on Friday, 13 June.
The sculpture of a life-size leopard was made from many of the 220 gin traps removed from farms in the Baviaanskloof, Eastern Cape during the Landmark Foundation’s efforts in 2008. The unveiling coincided with an information session and according to Carolyn the sculpture will remain at Creation for some months – “serving as a symbol of our ongoing commitment to conserving Nature’s rich gifts to our land. We also trust that this will raise awareness of the plight of the leopard and encourage more farms to join.”
The unveiling of this unique piece of art at Creation also coincided with the Fynarts Festival taking place in Hermanus from 6 to 16 June, thereby celebrating Creation’s dedication to both conservation and the arts.
