Creating Wines of Distinction

General

Jordy Hesseling after two months at Creation

Every year Creation opens its doors to cellar interns from around the world to join winemakers JC Martin and Gerhard Smith and cellar assistants Kirsten Myburgh and Urle Hansen in producing world-class wines. Two months ago the team was joined by Dutch vinologist Jordy Hesseling who has been working as a floor manager in a winebar in the Netherlands for the past seven years. Asked why he had chosen to…

The Great Taste of Sustainability

When Overstrand Hermanus was recently (2019) awarded UNESCO Creative City status for Gastronomy, it was one of only 10 cities worldwide and the first on the African continent to receive this distinction. “What an honour to be recognised as a laboratory of ideas and innovative practices and for bringing a tangible contribution to achieving sustainable development goals that directly benefit our community,” comments Creation co-owner Carolyn Martin. The UNESCO recognition…

Hands Full of Blessings

At Creation all grapes are harvested in the time-honoured way – by hand. This is in line with co-owner Jean-Claude (JC) Martin’s respect for Mother Nature and his artisanal approach in both the vineyard and the cellar. Why hand-picking? “Our harvest team knows exactly what to look for in a bunch, ensuring that no overripe or damaged grapes or leaves land in the crates. This precludes the need for sorting…

The Truth in the Terroir

Creation holds the concept of ‘resonance’ near and dear as one of its four core values. “What originates in the vineyard resonates in the glass and at Creation our ultimate mission is to reflect the heart and soul of our terroir in our wines,” explains co-owner Carolyn Martin. What does terroir truly mean? “Here at Creation, we consider terroir to be the soil, the climate, the weather and the cultivar,…

Cape Wine Auction 2020

Established in 2014, the Cape Wine Auction Trust has been on a mission to raise money in support of education in the Cape Winelands ever since. This year’s glittering two-day event (14 and 15 February) saw Creation Wines’ eco-friendly auction lot titled ‘What a Wonderful World’, raising an amazing R340 000. Four main points differentiate the Cape Wine Auction Trust from other philanthropic organisations: 1) 100% of all donations go directly to beneficiaries;…

Pinot Applause!

World-class Pinot Noir nurtured under cool-climate African skies … choice regional cuisine and heavenly scenery. These were but a few of the ingredients contributing to the joie de vivre of the 2020 Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir Celebration. Aptly titled ‘Under Pinot Skies’, this seventh celebration took place over the weekend of 24 and 25 January and once again glittered in its unique presentation. Starring some of the most amazing examples of…

Wild Yeast finds Resonance in Elegant Wines

Resonance is a core Creation value. Co-owner Carolyn Martin explains: “In the Tasting Room it means that we constantly strive to create experiences that resonate with our guests, making their visit personal and memorable. In the cellar it is about echoing the sense of place: respecting what Mother Nature provides and enhancing rather than transforming her gifts. What originates in the vineyard resonates in the glass and this is especially…

For the Love of Pinot

The perfect Pinot Noir, how would one describe it? Flamboyant and berry rich yet elegant with delicate tannins and earthy tones of forest floor, this Prince of Reds has captured the affections of many since its earliest mention in 1395. Despite the ever-growing passion for Pinot this rather fickle grape remains one of the more difficult vine species to cultivate. It is shy and delicate with a thin skin and…

A Love Letter to Summer…

The month of December at Creation saw a buzzing sensation of joy and love flowing through the farm. A record number of guests participated in our Love Story of Creation, a 5-course pairing of light vibrant dishes with our 5-star wines. Could one ask for a better lead up to 2020?       With a new decade upon us, 2020 brings some new exciting experiences to watch out for…

That’s a Wrap for 2019!

What has been an exciting and eventful year for Creation is fast drawing to a close and it’s time for an overview of the highlights.  – Co-owner Carolyn Martin Wrapping up of course also means saluting the stars of the show and giving credit where it is due.  Well, according to Carolyn not only the dedicated Creation team, but all their committed suppliers as well as each and every loyal…
