Daring wine pairings at Creation Wines

Over the past seven years Creation has established a proud reputation for innovative wine pairing experiences in the Tasting Room. From humble beginnings our wine pairing canapé concept has been joined by five pioneering pairing experiences – including our mysterious and magical Secret Pairing and the hip and happening Brunch Pairing.

Now, to enhance the pairing adventure Creation will be offering speciality pairing platters and an expanded wine and canapé experience to excite all the senses. Our Tasting Room pairing menu is currently undergoing some sensational changes which will be introduced over the next few weeks. At Creation we believe the true art of wine and food pairing lies in meticulously considering all the senses involved and ensuring that they are stimulated and rewarded with each pairing. Add to this a well-appointed Tasting Room on a beautiful wine estate with exceptional service and all we can say is ‘watch this space’!

Evolution of pairing

Many of the over 40 000 visitors we were privileged to welcome to Creation last year commented on the ingenious combinations of flavour and texture that complement our wines so perfectly, and wondered how we manage to come up with the sometimes unexpected (but always delicious) pairings. Carolyn Martin (née Finlayson), co-owner and marketing director, is the wine and food pairing guru at Creation Wines and firmly believes that there is no formula and very few unbreakable rules when it comes to finding the perfect match. All of which makes pairing a somewhat esoteric art, one which relies on experience and intuition as much as a willingness to try new things
