It is a great truth that sustainability requires innovation. To stay at the forefront we are constantly implementing new means of maintaining and preserving the precious ecological balance on our farm. Among our many investments in sustainability is the virus-free programme that we embarked upon twenty years ago. At Creation we plant vineyards to grow old!

Innovative Approaches, Inventive Solutions
“South Africa’s world-renowned wine industry is undergoing a transformation where challenges are being met with innovative approaches and inventive solutions.” This sums up the insightful documentary recently produced by CNN and to which we had the pleasure of contributing. Dealing with various topical issues, from inclusivity in the wine industry to virus-free vines, the film ends with me speaking on behalf of the Creation team: ‘We need to bring joy to this world. That’s what we’re here to do.’

Chardonnay Shines at Creation
International Chardonnay Day is on Thursday, 26 May and at Creation we take pleasure in celebrating our unique Chardonnay provenance. A provenance rooted in the ideal cool-climate terroir of Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and also in the fact that Cellarmaster Jean-Claude honed his skills on Chardonnay while establishing his career in Switzerland.
With no less than four artisanal Chardonnays in our portfolio, lovers of this charismatic cultivar are spoiled for choice. Simply click here [insert shop link] to make your selection. By ordering, your name will automatically be entered to win a mixed case of Creation Chardonnay, compliments of our Cellar Team to celebrate another successful vintage.
What Greg Sherwood MW has to say:
“I think it’s indisputable that only a handful of producers in South Africa have well and truly cracked the winemaking code for producing top world-class quality Chardonnay. So many commentators and consumers get confused between producers making good versus great expressions. . . . Creation Wines are certainly one of the few South African wineries producing Chardonnay expressions that can be considered “next level” when tasted alongside top international benchmarks from France, New Zealand, Australia or California.”

Creation in the news
At Creation we’re excited at the prospect of launching our new Wine and Food Pairing Menu this coming week. It is titled ‘Return to Nature’, with a subtitle, ‘Innovative Nostalgia’. The menu features a delectable range of dishes, ideal for winter and thoughtfully presented in a sequence aimed at optimising your blood sugar levels. The experience is enhanced by using elements from nature and our terroir. Although 80% of the menu is plant based, it also features the freshest and finest local fish, free-range chicken and springbok from sustainable sources. An exquisitely flavourful, equally nutritious vegan menu is also on offer. Sounds intriguing?
