At Creation we regularly receive sommeliers from all corners of the earth, but it is not often that we get to share our little piece of paradise first hand with no less than eight of South Africa’s top sommeliers at the same time!
It was a real pleasure to host them on the 4th and 5th of April, showing them around and getting their feedback. We value their comments and take pleasure in sharing some of these with you.
Frank Ndlovu – The River Club, Johannesburg:
The whole experience was a revelation, especially the fact that it was possible to enjoy wine at 10 am with your brunch pairing. Never mind champagne being the respectable choice for any time of day – wine fits that category too! Pairing it with breakfast, lunch or dinner can make those occasions enjoyable and memorable especially when done in a sensible way. My personal choice? I just loved the poached quail eggs on asparagus and green pepper purée with Hollandaise sauce paired with the Creation Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon.

Yummy Homemade Hot Cross Buns for Easter
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.

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:
We enjoyed a fantastic wine tasting today with the expert advice and information of the very knowledgeable and charming staff. We tasted the Reserve wines that were served with very tasty canapés. We had a nice chat with the owner and surely will follow this up with enquiries from the Dutch agent. We hope the little daughter will become as good as she already promises to be.

Although this should be a review I would totally spoil the experience by detailing this amazing Estate! I would therefore humbly suggest that you put a half day aside and go and visit this amazing estate that understands the powers of the moon’s journey, the cooperation of the animals in the field and hence make some of the most remarkable wines. Go and learn and enjoy!
