The exciting news is out: apart from their latest wine releases the Creation team also recently introduced their first olive oil. The 2019 Creation Extra Virgin Olive Oil was grown in two Hemel-en-Aarde groves planted in 2007 on the Mount Babylon and Vrede farms and covering 1.5 hectare in total. Selected for their suitability to the terroir, the cultivars include four Italian varieties – Coratina, Leccino, Frantoio and Favolosa – as well as a Sicilian cultivar, Nocellare del Belice.
Prestigious Rotary Award for Carolyn
“Rotarians designate a Paul Harris Fellow as a tribute to a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives of the Rotary Foundation. Last night we had the honour and pleasure of recognising a remarkable lady as a PHF,” said Ann Wright, President of Rotary, Hermanus on bestowing this prestigious fellowship upon Creation’s Carolyn Martin.
According to Ann the award is the highest recognition in Rotary and the foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programmes. She described Carolyn as a driving force and a highly respected member of the Hermanus business community, adding: “It’s for her deep sense of the needs of our community that we wish to honour her. Education is a major focus area of Rotary International. Carolyn’s passion to get the Pebbles Education project off the ground is legendary and it was this drive for an ECD centre in the valley that got our club on board the Pebbles Education Project and for this we are most grateful.”
Two New Gems from Creation
The much anticipated 2018 Creation Reserve Chardonnay and Creation Reserve Pinot Noir vintages have just been released! Being the estate’s flagship cultivars already makes them desirable. What makes them irresistible however is the fact that the grapes were grown in single vineyard blocks, site selected for superior quality. A glittering track record of international accolades for previous vintages makes them even more sought after.

Creation on the Move
This past week saw Creation’s Gerhard Smith and Phillip Marais in Port Elizabeth where they conducted a number of exciting wine and dine events, wine club tastings and private functions. Phillip, who has been visiting PE for the past seven years, reports: “We had the pleasure of visiting a number of great wine clubs and did a wine and food pairing with BLC Attorneys at the Ginger Restaurant. We also presented a couple of private tastings for which we created a delicious 5-course pairing menu, focusing on the Creation Reserve range.” Phillip will be back in PE in July for the Tops Wine Show and already looks forward to meeting more of the city’s wine lovers.
