TUESDAY, August 18, 2020, is International Pinot Noir Day so raise a glass and drink a toast to this beautiful cultivar. And not just any glass…


Winemakers and wine writers often get excited about wine being site-specific, but for those who enjoy drinking the wine, it is important that the terroir relates to taste. La Motte’s trusted pair of Syrah and Chardonnay are made exclusively from Franschhoek grapes and you can taste it.


Creation Wines in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley has long been a favourite destination for its exceptional wines and innovative and creative food pairings. Now, with the recent completion of the self-catering “Voormanshuis” you can enjoy the serenity of spending a night there in the vineyards.


On a recent trip to Hermanus, a visit to Creation Wines was on the itinerary. I don’t know what I was thinking when I initially turned it down, but after bumping into Carolyn Martin and being seduced by her enthusiasm – as well as a string of delightful memories of meals there – the brunch pairing was restored.
