Great Wine Capitals Award Recognises Creation Innovation

This past week Creation Wines had the honour of receiving the prestigious 2021 Great Wine Capitals (GWC) Best of Wine Tourism Award for Innovative Wine Tourism. Since its establishment in 2002 this Hemel-en-Aarde estate has become synonymous with innovation and co-owner and marketing director Carolyn Martin says the Creation team is delighted.

To me the 2021 award is all about how we pivoted over the past months.

Our team went to extraordinary lengths to mitigate the challenges imposed on wineries during the Covid-19 lockdown and the ban on the sale of alcohol. This happened on many levels: from sourcing materials and upskilling the team to the development of new products and delivery systems. I see the award as recognition for their resilience and courage during a time of great uncertainty and would like to thank the judges for noticing.  Sometimes innovation is born out of adversity; this year was nothing short of a miracle with suppliers, agents, friends and clients rallying around to create our inspired new reality. Thank you all for being part of the Creation Nation!
