“Superb wine in a beautiful setting, service a bit slow”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We came here in November and had the canape tasting with wine. The wines were delicious and were neatly explained by the wine waiter.

One fault with this experience is that the canapes all arrive at once on a platter and sit there getting cold for the 45 minutes or so that the tasting experience takes. As one previous reviewer has commented, the service should be a little swifter with the canape tasting - challenging to do with the number of courses and wines, but still.....

We bought a bottle of the Viognier to take home - very good.

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Without a booking we popped by on someone's recommendation. The owners welcomed us and accommodated us even though they were fully booked. Our children were also welcome, the food was plentiful and delicious. The wine outstanding. We bought the Sauv Blanc. The views are STUNNING! Creation wines is such a beautiful place. A bit of a drive but very scenic and not too far, well worth the trip.

“Good wine and dining”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We enjoyed a super meal of pickled mushroom salad and goats cheese which was excellend. The portion was small for a lunch. The wines were great we had a sav blanc to accompany the meal. We enjoyed a wine tasting at the table - a great diffrenece is that they serve each wine in a different shaped glass a real treat! The 4 of us enjoyed the meal. The views are breath taking! Worth a visit
