The Truth in the Terroir

Creation holds the concept of ‘resonance’ near and dear as one of its four core values. “What originates in the vineyard resonates in the glass and at Creation our ultimate mission is to reflect the heart and soul of our terroir in our wines,” explains co-owner Carolyn Martin.

What does terroir truly mean? “Here at Creation, we consider terroir to be the soil, the climate, the weather and the cultivar, not to mention the hands that tend the vines and later the wines.” Creation recently welcomed Dr John Bristow, a leading South African geochemist/geologist, to the Tasting Room to share his knowledge of the Creation terroir.
