One thing can be said about the Creation team without fear of contradiction: their sense of culinary adventure (coupled with their wanderlust) knows no bounds! To stay on top of the wine and food pairing game, Carolyn Martin and Daniela Messina recently jetted off again, this time to explore some of the hottest cuisine spots in the UK and Europe. The trip brought them into contact with an exciting diversity of influences, both cultural and culinary, which says Carolyn, always triggers the imagination and is a wonderful source of inspiration.

Creation in the news
A couple of months ago, I received the sweetest telling off of a long career. Just a day after I'd described Creation wine estate outside Hermanus as "little known" in a story, I received a chiding message from co-owner Carolyn Martin: "It's not so much that we're little known," she said, "as that Creation is a well-kept secret." The distinction was subtle but important, she said.
Creation is delighted to have its co-owner and cellarmaster Jean-Claude (JC) Martin shortlisted as one of the finalists for the 2019 Diners Club Winemaker Awards.
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.
