Creation wine estate is really beautiful, then you walk into the restaurant, which is also beautifully decorated and has a very light, comfortable atmosphere. The waitresses were very friendl and helpful. We had the food and wine pairing which was so deliecious and beautifully presented! I expected to pay a lot more than I did. The Chardonnay is the best I've ever tasted, and is reasonably priced.
I would recommend Creation to anyone in the area.

I was once again thoroughly impressed with Creation Wines. I first visited this wine farm two years ago and am happy to say that they have only improved. It was a rainy cold day and the atmosphere was nice and cozy, and buzzing with people - you will have to book if you want to be sure of a table. Menu is limited but covers at least one warm meat dish (venison pie) and a variety of other snacks and platters, savoury and sweet - I had the wine pairing for R110 which is excellent value with a variety of canapes of good quality, their dessert truffles are very good and their double americano's are prepared by their own barista. Their attention to detail is really good, and of course the wines - all in all the visit made our weekend! Just take note that there are currently roadworks from Hermanus side (a good few km/s of dirt road that's in quite bad condition), so be prepared to get your car dirty or take a 4x4.

Creation Wines is not primarily a restaurant, but a small and relatively young winery where you can have a light lunch. In a province, where wine estates with restaurants are a dime a dozen, Creation stands out. Set in a modern building amongst the vineyards and overlooking a dam you have your tasting either as such or accompanied by a light lunch or a "food and wine pairing": Small bite-sized bits of food enhancing the taste of the wine. Be informed, however, that the main attraction are the wines, not the food: If you are very hungry, go elsewhere, but buy your wines here: Multiple award winners and ratings from excellent to icon. Service is highly efficient and personal: More often than not, you will find the owner/winemaker/front office manager husband and wife team of Carolyn and JC Martin there, ready to talk to you and explain their wines. It is this personal attention that defines the estate and the experience to visitors. Rising quality of the wines and the above service experience have seen to it, that booking is becoming mandatory over the weekends and in high season also during the week.

Most wine lovers love good food and most food lovers love good wine! The Creation Food and Wine paring experience takes wine tasting to the next level. Try out their magnificent wines with a canapé paired by their chef to bring out the best in their wines whilst enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Hemel-and-Aarde wine region. Thank you Creation and the team for catering for all our dietary requirements!

A family friend celebrated her 80th birthday at Creation wines and we were lucky enough to be invited. We ordered gluten free food and this was done without any problems with the wine paring as well as the lunch itself. Great food and although I am not a wine drinker I enjoyed learning about the wines and enjoyed the food paring. The views are spectacular and in future I will bring more guests to this estate to enjoy the local wines. Well done Creation Wines and well done to the chefs for understanding gluten free food.
