At Creation every dawn brings an exciting new challenge and innovation is a way of life. This trendsetting spirit has shaped our vision and led to many of our achievements.

 

Friends are so inspirational. They send you thoughtful messages just when you need them most. A great example is our friend Baptiste Quinard from Burgundy. For the longest time we’ve been discussing the development of our Tasting Room space. Then, when we hit an all-time low with the pandemic at the beginning of January this year, we received a most precious gift from Baptiste in the form of unique and innovative ideas for an environmentally positive space. I’m delighted to say that Baptiste’s magnificent plans are now a work in progress. 

 

Serving your wine in the ‘correct’ glassware is as important as choosing the right wine for the occasion and serving it at the right temperature. So much of the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of a wine can be affected by the glass. That’s why we at Creation have invested in the Riedel Vinum collection of varietal-specific, cold-cut clear crystal glasses to showcase our wines.

 

At Creation one exciting innovation often leads to another. Such is the case with our new brunch menu, which inspired by our recently launched Creation Aromatic Winter Experience, transforms brunch into a unique and irresistible feast for the senses.
