The scenic Hemel-en-Aarde ridge is home to the well-known wine label Creation. Co-owners Jean-Claude and Carolyn Martin established the winery in early 2002 and later opened their celebrated and highly awarded restaurant.
Expect innovative food and a superb wine offering to match. The menu extends a variety of options to immerse yourself in the estate's wines, paired with contemporary cuisine.
The showstopper of a 6-course taste adventure, artfully paired with 8 award-winning Creation wines allows you to explore the story of Creation. Each chapter is explained by the waiter and wines paired with equally interesting tasting portions.
A new addition of a small plate pairing allows you to choose the number of courses to enjoy and is also paired with wines from the estate. Our choice of a cauliflower soup with gorgonzola and blueberries was a comforting match to the reserve merlot. A deconstructed venison pie served with slow cooked and seared venison was a masterful combination with the syrah grenache. The mango sabayon with yuzu meringue and lemon verbena was a lively match to the reserve chardonnay and stole the show for me.
There is still a myriad of other pairings like the brunch, cheese, charcuterie, gelato and chocolate. Vegans have a dedicated option and a non-alcoholic tea paring is also available. Children are not forgotten and can also join in with 5-course kid friendly tasting.
It is recommended to make a booking through all season for both wine tasting and the restaurant due to popularity.
The full range of the cellars wines are available for tasting and purchase. You will not be disappointed if you only taste the two reserve wines; Creation Art of Chardonnay and Art of Pinot Noir.
Our creation experience was seamless from the time we made the booking down to the last goodbye. Staff are well versed on the wines and create a comforting atmosphere while still being professional.
The terrace and lawn area operate during the warmer seasons and allow you to enjoy the expansive views and picturesque valley while sipping your wine. A roaring fire in the centre of the contemporary tasting room will keep you cosy in the colder month while enjoying the stellar views through the floor to ceiling glass panels.
A lazy gastronomic lunch in the scenic valley with stellar wines.
