Great Wine Capitals (GWC) is a network of major global cities sharing a key economic and cultural asset: their internationally renowned wine regions. Now in its 23rd year, GWC’s Best of Wine Tourism Awards is an international competition designed to reward the wineries in member cities and wine regions that have distinguished themselves in terms of delivering quality experiences to the public.
The latest highlight on the Creation calendar has been the 2022 Best of Wine Tourism Awards ceremony held on our beautiful estate on Tuesday, 12 October. Creation was honoured to win in two of the seven South African categories: Best in Wine Tourism Restaurants and Wine Tourism Services.
To me, Creation’s achievement is the culmination of the most challenging time in our 19-year journey. The past 18 months have asked for us to be courageous and inventive – to be pioneers. Our chefs and hospitality team were called upon to be more agile, creative and innovative than ever before. And never before has it been so critical for us to support outreach programmes in our community. I see these prestigious awards as recognition of our team’s resilience and dedication.
