Nestled within the striking landscapes of South Africa’s Walker Bay Wine Region, Creation Wines is a sight to behold. A tour through the vineyards is an expedition into the heart of a winemaking pioneer, renowned for its commitment to sustainability and innovative vintages. Indeed, Creation Wines is not just a winery, but a testament to the beauty and wonder of nature.
The winery was established by Swiss winemaker, Jean-Claude Martin, and his South African wife, Carolyn, in 2002. It is woven into the hemispheres of their cultures, marrying Swiss precision with African passion. Each intricate detail of winemaking is meticulously overseen to ensure every sip is a melody of resplendent flavours.
Excellent viticulture practices are not all that family-owned Creation Wines is celebrated for. The winery excels in producing an array of bold and elegant wines, from vibrant Chardonnays to rich and smooth Pinot Noirs. With vineyards expanding across 50 hectares, the output of this winery is not only admirable but also consistently exquisite.
Backdropped by the Babylonstoren Mountains and overlooking the deep blue ocean, the marriage of sand and clay on the winery's terrain makes it an ideal location for growing diverse grape varieties. Its vineyards are immediately recognisable by the unique trellis system fanned out to capture the nourishing maritime breezes. This special system not only heightens the wines aromatic complexities; but also contributes to the sustainable practices deployed by the winery.
Beyond the vineyards, Creation’s Tasting Room is the epitome of indulgence. Fusing wine with cuisine in a symphony of flavours, food and wine pairing here take on a new dimension. Overlooking the vines and the picturesque bay beyond, it's an unforgettable culinary journey.
From the soil to the bottle, every element of Creation’s winemaking process embodies a deep respect for nature. Both empowering and humbling Creation Winery reminds us what a true celebration of wine should be—. Showcasing the Gods-given bounty of South Africa’s extraordinary terroir.
