At Creation we like to think of our Tasting Room not only as a place where we can pamper our guests but also as a place where we can interact and learn from each other.
A recent visit from the well-known German cheese sommelier Michael Bode from Käse Ecke in Lindau Insel presented such an opportunity. Michael of course ‘chatted cheese’, sharing some valuable information on cheese tasting such as rind, smell, texture and optics. His visit ended in an unexpected and pleasurable cheese and wine tasting where the sharing of exciting ideas was the order of the day.
At Creation the 2017 harvest is in full swing and there is a tangible energy in the air! Our grapes travel no more than five minutes from being harvested in our virus-free vineyards (usually in the cool early morning) to the cellar, and are hand-picked and transported in small crates to prevent damage. Click here to watch our first Pinot Noir grapes entering the cellar.
Feed a Child
Visitors to the Creation Tasting Room will have the opportunity of contributing to the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde After-School Care feeding scheme by asking their waitron to add R10 pp to their bill.
This will be an entirely voluntary donation and we would like your feedback on the matter. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to help.
Yes, it’s Klink season again and at Creation we’re delighted to be a nominee in the category that we love best: Wine and Food Pairing. As proud recipients of three Klink awards for Best Food and Wine Pairing we look forward to competing in the same category – now named ‘Great Pairings’ – once more.
Creation is a pioneer in the field of Wine and Food Pairing, offering no less than eight pairing options. Among these are the famous Tapas Pairing, the intriguing Secret Pairing, the scrumptious Brunch Pairing and the popular Kids Surprise Pairing. The latest innovations are Wine and Herb as well as Wine and Flower Pairings while a brand-new Vegan repertoire is being developed. In short: when it comes to Wine and Food Pairing, there’s always something new and unique in the pipeline!
Wine Tourism South Africa’s Klink Awards plays a proactive role in promoting one of South Africa’s fastest growing sectors – the local wine tourism industry. Unlike other local wine awards, it is consumer-driven, interacting with wine lovers to solicit their feedback via votes and social media indicators regarding their favourite experiences.
So, let your own experience be the deciding factor … Do you feel Creation deserves to be Klink’s ‘Great Pairings’ Champion? Then please go to winetourismsouthafrica.co.za/sliceofsa/, click on ‘Great Pairings’ and cast your vote – which is very important to us!

Welcome to Our Little Piece of Paradise
Situated some 18 km from the coastal resort of Hermanus, Creation is more than a wine farm; it is a glorious destination where a warm welcome awaits young and old. Click here to make a reservation. Here are some comments recently made by our visitors:
One of the best in South Africa, with many options – including chocolate pairing, non-alcoholic pairing and even a pairing for kids. It’s pretty long way from Hermanus or N2, but worth of finding out.
– VAH0 (TripAdvisor review)
Creation Wines makes your wine and food pairing an unforgettable experience. Delicious wines, delicate dishes that combine perfectly. Their well-trained staff guide you through the tasting. Creation is situated in the pittoresk Heaven and Earth Valley, between Hermanus and Caledon.
– AstridV (TripAdvisor review)
Hidden gem about 20 km drive from Hermanus. It offers a beautiful landscape as well as good wines and various good options (tapas, mains, chocolates etc). There is also tea tasting for those who wish to opt out from wines. Overall a pleasant visit.
