Creation Wines At Cape Wine Auction 2020

Established in 2014, the Cape Wine Auction Trust has been on a mission to raise money in support of education in the Cape Winelands ever since. This year’s glittering two-day event (14 and 15 February) saw Creation Wines’ eco-friendly auction lot titled ‘What a Wonderful World’, raising an amazing R340 000.

 

Heart of the Harvest

Following their popular ‘Summer Love Story’ pairing menu, the Creation Culinary Team is now pulling out all stops in celebration of Harvest 2020. And this means not only the grape vintage but also the choice fresh produce harvested from the Overberg and surrounds. Among the many treats on their brand-new menu will be sensorial tastings using key elements from the unique Creation terroir to titillate the senses, says pairing guru Carolyn Martin.

 

A Week in the Creation 2020 Harvest Calendar

Yes, it is harvest time at Creation and the vineyards and cellar are abuzz with activity … and anticipation. Cellarmaster Jean-Claude Martin says growing conditions throughout the year have been great and the grapes are ripening gradually and evenly. “We had beautiful weather conditions with ocean breezes cooling the vineyards and started off by harvesting the grapes for our Creation Art of Pinot Noir. The whole bunches were loaded into open wood fermenters to start natural fermentation and in the cellar it’s all hands on deck.”

 

Pinot Applause!

Aptly titled ‘Under Pinot Skies’, the seventh Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir Celebration took place over the weekend of 24 and 25 January and once again glittered in its unique presentation.

 

Wild Yeast finds Resonance in Elegant Wines

Resonance is a core Creation value. Co-owner Carolyn Martin explains: “In the Tasting Room it means that we constantly strive to create experiences that resonate with our guests, making their visit personal and memorable. In the cellar it is about echoing the sense of place: respecting what Mother Nature provides and enhancing rather than transforming her gifts. What originates in the vineyard resonates in the glass and this is especially true of the terroir-reflective wines in the Creation portfolio.”

 

Creation Wines – Where Heaven and Earth Meet

Tucked away on the slopes of Hemel en Aarde is Creation Wines – a magnificent place where food and wine take centre stage. Look out onto their spectacular vineyards while you sip on wine and enjoy fabulous food prepared with the best local ingredients.

A Love Letter To Summer From Creation Wines

The month of December at Creation saw a buzzing sensation of joy and love flowing through the farm. A record number of guests participated in our Love Story of Creation, a 5-course pairing of light vibrant dishes with our 5-star wines. Could one ask for a better lead up to 2020?
