Creation: “Where the Magic Begins”

With Creation enjoying such a proud reputation for wine and food pairing – among others a four-times winner of the prestigious KLINK ‘Great Pairings’ award  –  it is not surprising that the team has a natural affinity for sommeliers! Hence the day-long Creation ‘Sommelier Sojourn’ which took place in February and was attended by nine of South Africa’s finest sommeliers.

The day started bright and early with the sommeliers being transported from Cape Town to Creation in the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde for a brisk breakfast. Then it was down to ‘business’: the visitors each donned a ‘picking outfit’ and with shears and crates in hand they joined in the harvesting of the Sauvignon Blanc.

Great fun was had by all and perhaps the most pertinent feedback came from John Chishimba from the Leeu Collection, Franschhoek:

To have been where the magic begins was truly inspiring: the Creation team made me feel like I was one of them. I was so happy to be in the vineyards doing some harvesting, which made me feel like I was the winemaker for a while. Thank you Team Creation. I’ve had many wine experiences, but this was one of a kind.
