Thanks to this trendsetting spirit, the Creation team has played a pioneering role in developing wine and food pairing in the Cape Winelands,…

Creation: Memorable Wines from Mature Vines

“As Creation’s vines get older, so the quality of the Pinot Noirs they produce continues to increase,” says Tim Atkin MW in his latest (2020) South Africa Special Report.

Three of these wines also qualify for…

A Passion for Pinot

Ask Creation viticulturist and winemaker Jean-Claude (JC) Martin about his favourite cultivar and he responds without hesitation: Pinot Noir.
