Here are a few comments recently made by our visitors:
Extraordinary pairings experience. WOW – I had the most memorable “lunch” here. Enjoyed the 8 course pairings menu. I can only say this was PURE ARTISTRY! I doubt anyone could leave this place without having a higher respect for the art of food and wine pairings. GENIOUS – JungleJody (TripAdvisor review)
The service staff were attentive and friendly. Our wine sommelier Pamela was knowledgeable about the menu and the wine and gave us valuable insight on the Creation wines. We really enjoyed the Merlot, Pinot Noir and the Creation Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot blend, which was our favourite. I visited the winery with a guest from Canada. Pamela provided him with distribution information for your wines in Canada. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The starter and Main courses were delicious and beautifully presented. – Claudi Dittrich (Online review)
We were greeted with a warm welcome. We didn’t make any reservations as we decided in that moment to visit Creation. When we arrived the place was fully packed, yet we were still warmly welcomed and soon they arranged a place for us. The wines were really great and the staff very friendly and enthusiastic. The best wine tasting experience in Hermanus and in the greater Hemel and Aarde Valley. Creation has absolutely no competition. We can’t wait to visit the beautifuk Creation again soon! – Melindi01 (TripAdvisor Review)
What an incredibly fun, interesting and cool experience! Went with my boyfriend, dad and girlfriend and oh, what an amazing day! We were going to visit other wineries but we had such a good time at Creation! It was a sunny day, sat outside and it was super busy but our wine expert was Stephanie (how lucky we were to have her) and she was super knowledgeable, cheeky and made the whole experience even better than it would have been if we just had the amazing wine. Thanks so much for the Syrah/Grenache and the Viognier is a total must have, special and interesting! Must go – relax and enjoy the beautiful mountain hemel en aarde views! – (TripAdvisor Review)
