Creation Wines

Hemel-en-Aarde Wine Valley


Creation strives to reward the wine lover with wines of balance, elegance, distinction, finesse and exceptional gastronomy. When in 2002 Jean-Claude (JC) and Carolyn Martin took up the challenge of establishing a winery in a remote corner of the Walker Bay Wine Region, they did so with the courage of their conviction. The 40ha of undulating land on the lofty Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge had never been planted to vines before, but recognising the potential, they set out to transform it. No easy feat, but then the Swiss-born JC and South African-born Carolyn (née Finlayson) both come from wine pioneering stock spanning at least three generations and two continents.

Enhancing the appeal of Creation Wines is the sense of place. Starting with the warm reception in our attractive Tasting Room it extends to no less than eight pairings on offer: The Story of Creation, the Small-Plate Pairing, the Cheese and Charcuterie Pairings, the 10AM Brunch Pairing, the Paradoxical Chocolate Pairing, the Non-alcoholic Tea Pairing, the Surprise Pairing for Kids and the Gelato Pairing. Add to these the informative tours of our vineyards and cellar, the beauty of our surrounding fynbos gardens and the contemporary art on display – all of which contribute to the image of a distinctive wine range, created for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
