Creation. A World of Opportunities
When in 2002 Jean-Claude (JC) and Carolyn Martin took up the challenge of establishing a winery in a remote corner of the Walker Bay Wine Region, they did so with the courage of their conviction. The farm on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge had never been planted to vines before, but recognising the vast potential, they set out with tenacity and ingenuity to transform it into a highly successful wine estate within only five years.
Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the World’s Best 50 Vineyards. Our cool-climate wines are consistently rated 90 points and more by international Wine Masters, while our pioneering Wine and Food Pairing menus have earned us a global reputation as leaders in the field of gastronomy.
Innovation a Way of Life
At Creation every dawn brings an exciting new challenge and innovation is a way of life. This trendsetting spirit has shaped our vision and led to many notable achievements.
These achievements would not have been possible without the vital input of a creative and dynamic team who are dedicated to our brand and always willing to go the extra mile. Our team members are an intrinsic part of the Creation family and live by our core values of Passion, Charisma, Resonance, Déjà Vu and Alchemy – all of which contribute to our driving force: constant renewal.
Innovation means Growth
The ideal Creation employee is adventurous, motivated and eager to learn. To foster our culture of innovation, we strive to equip our team members with the tools and the insight to achieve their goals. Ranging from personal development programmes to internationally recognised qualifications such as WSET, we offer all our employees the opportunity of expanding their career horizons and realising their inherent potential.
With ongoing training courses ensuring that our employees stay not only on top, but ahead of their game, they are ready for promotion whenever the opportunity presents itself. We firmly believe in internal promotion whenever possible. We encourage imaginative and energetic team participation, rewarding initiative and accomplishment with the recognition they deserve.
A Culture of Camaraderie and Care
Our workplace environment is characterised by conviviality and fun, camaraderie and close co-operation. We have a very low staff turnover, reflective of the loyalty and pride instilled in our team members. Our culture is youthful and vibrant, providing the positive energy and spirit of innovation we rely on for our success.
This culture of care extends to our community where we are privileged to be closely involved in the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Education Project. It also embraces our natural environment: we enjoy the distinction of being WWF Conservation Champions for our longstanding commitment to sustainable development.
