Creation, proud home of the highly acclaimed Art of Chardonnay and Art of Pinot Noir wine portfolio, has been supporting the Hermanus FynArts festival since 2011. This year FynArts takes place from 8 to 17 June and the estate looks forward to showcasing the works of accomplished sculptor, Gordon Froud. The artist has been actively involved in both the South African and the international art world for the past 30 years. To read more about him, click here and to see some of his work, click here.
Commenting on FynArts, Carolyn Martin says that the estate has been an avid supporter of the arts and especially of local artists since its inception. “Art is a fantastic analogy for winemaking considering that the winemaker takes the raw materials of nature and ‘sculpts’ them into something which, although still composed of its basic parts, is greater than the sum – an Art indeed.”
To celebrate this fact Creation launched its exclusive The Art of Creation wine range in 2013. Comprising a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir, the single-vineyard, single-site ‘Art’ range has since won accolade upon accolade. Among the latest are scores of 95 for the 2017 Creation Art of Chardonnay and 94-95 for the 2017 Creation Art of Pinot Noir (barrel sample) allocated by the authoritative Greg Sherwood MW.
Aptly titled ‘Geometrica’, the Gordon Froud exhibition at Creation continues the artist’s exploration of geometric forms. Created in welded steel mesh and powder-coated in bright colours, the works consist of large and small sculptures and promise to elicit great interest. The exhibition will be open daily from 10h00 to 16h00.
To coincide with FynArts, Creation is introducing a delectable winter menu titled ‘The Artisanal Story of Creation’. Inspired by authentic recipes and the freshest and finest of locally sourced ingredients, the unique 5-course menu is artfully paired with 7 award-winning Creation wines. “This great culinary experience is achieved by combining time-honoured methods with innovative techniques, transforming Craft into Art,” says an enthusiastic Carolyn.

Recent visitor feedback:
“For us it was real good with subtle flavors combined with the wine and beautifully paired. Suggestion: the tuna sushi was absolutely delicious. It could benefit from grated or sliced/diced radish….but it was great. Be careful to serve fresh coriander…Aletta liked it but I absolutely not. The table next to us commended on the beautiful plating/presentation. For me the avocado and salmon was a little rich but Aletta thought it was great. Overall it was 10/10 experience. Thank you! Compliments to the chef and everybody else!” – Pieter Scrooby (Post-tasting feedback)
