Hands Full of Blessings at Creation Wines

At Creation, all grapes are harvested in a 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 tables and additional handling. Another consideration for hand-harvesting is the fact that grape skins are easily bruised. Our pickers handle each bunch with care, snipping it off some 10 cm away from the stalk and then dropping it gently into the crate,” explains JC.
