Here are a few comments recently made by our visitors:
“I recently went to Creation Wines with a friend from overseas and the experience was exceptional. We tried the “Story of Creation” which consisted of a 7-course meal with wine pairings whilst the server told you the story of Creation. The food was excellent and very modern/new age “creations” and the presentation on the dishes was amazing. The wine was paired very well, too. We also had the chance to have a chat with Carolyn, one of the owners of the estate, who was very welcoming and seems to be very hands on. It is nice to see owners so involved.” – Patrick M (Post tasting feedback)
“To echo other reviewers: superlative adjectives are definitely required to describe the setting, venue, reception, atmosphere, presentation, cuisine, service, etc. of Creation’s Tasting Venue. The “Story of Creation” is a superb food-and-wine pairing experience, combining twelve excellent wines with seven very imaginative food-companions. Our knowledgeable “wine ambassador” guided us through the pairings, highlighting the interactions of the different and interesting taste sensations. For example, the pickled hake, poppadum, sweetcorn and apricot dish was paired with Viognier; the cauliflower, celeriac, walnut, gorgonzola soup with Reserve Merlot and the lamb shank, curry powder, sundried tomato and baby marrow dish with Grenache. The tastings were not rushed, nor did we have to wait unnecessarily for the next pairing. Even so, the whole experience lasted more than three-and-a-half very pleasant hours! The service was excellent: after each pairing, the tables were cleared efficiently and set with new cutlery and the required glassware for the next type of wine. The attractive tableware was very interesting! Note: Creation is not a restaurant in the normal sense of the word, but essentially a tasting venue.” – Hekkies (Post tasting feedback)
