Wine & Food Pairing: Art or Science?

There can be but a few places on earth where the natural partnership of wine and food is embraced more wholeheartedly than at Creation Wines on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Pairing guru Carolyn Martin recently proved her considerable skills once again at a demo held as part of the Hermanus FynArts festival.

Titled ‘The Facts & Fun of Wine & Umami Pairing’, the event was held in the Creation Tasting Room on Wednesday 12 June and attracted an enthusiastic audience, eager to learn more about this fascinating subject.

Creation on the Move 

Following his recent taste adventures in the Northern Rhône and Burgundy, Creation Cellarmaster Jean-Claude (JC) Martin then spent valuable wine time in the Netherlands and the UK. The 4th and 5th of June saw him trade visiting with Vinites, Creation’s newly appointed agent, culminating in what he enthusiastically describes as ‘a truly fantastic dinner’ at the Michelin-starred restaurant Amarone in Rotterdam.

Then it was off to the UK (6 and 7 June) where at 67 Pall Mall a masterclass brought him together with wine experts Winnie Bowman, Greg Sherwood MW, Susan Hulme MW, Christine Austin MW and Richard Siddle.

Now, back in South Africa JC looks forward to participating in the WineLand Adams & Adams Seminar on 22 August 2019 at Marlenique Estate, Simondium under the theme ‘CONNECT’. “Bespreek navorsings- en tegnologietendense met gasspreker Dave Duarte van Treeshake, luister na Steven Yeates van Adams & Adams wat die jongste in die regte en wyn deel en vind uit wat JC Martin van Creation Wines oor wingerdbou en wynmaak te sê het.” Click here to find out more.
