I love Creation! I've been fortunate to visit a number of South African wine estates, including several others in Hemel en Aarde, and Creation offers the best experience by far. They offer a wide range of wines, all very good and many excellent. The staff members are very knowledgeable and welcoming. Lots of food and wine pairing options, all great.... More

This is a collective review by seven of the adults at our table. Right off the bat, we all really liked our visit to Creation Wines. Firstly, Hemel-and-Aarde is a truly beautiful valley — and the backdrop for Creation, so naturally the grounds are stunning with the vineyards, lovely lawns, lake and artwork. We were a large table and were... More

Dear Donna, Thank you for visiting Creation and for the great feedback. We are sorry to hear that you felt a little cramped and rushed.

We chose a beautiful day for our visit. We had made reservations 10 months ago (from Florida), but the reservations could not be found. Fortunately for us, it was early and they were not busy. We were served a 12-day-in-the-barrel Syrah that was incredible. We also tried a 2-month-old Sumac Grenache that might sell for hundreds a bottle in five... More

Amazing Tapas and Wine 🍷pairing. Tapas and Tea pairing for my 14 year old son, and "Surprise Pairing" for my 10 year old daughter. Everyone had a fabulous time, and we will definitely return.

This was one of my favourite visits when we would go to Hermanus. In the past we would order a huge cheese platter and a glass of my favourite wine while my guests would do a wine tasting. Took my newly wed hubby there but there wasn't the option of a cheese platter anymore. Or a menu with food for... More

On a drive up the Hemel en Aarde route we stopped at Creation. On the spur of the moment we decided to have the complimentary wine tasting. The hostess was extra special, answering questions on the type of wine glass being used and why? Viognier excellent. Chardonnay even beter, as was the Pinot Noir. But the Grand Finale Syrah Grenance...to... More

What an amazing venue, food, service and wine! We had an 8 course food and wine pairing and was well informed about the smells and tastes by Ethan. Our taste buds were definitely spoiled by delicious food and wine which always goes very well together with excellent service by the staff.

Gourmet lunch with paired wines. R355 per person. The food was excellent and the wines to match. Service was personal and informed. Altogether a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Great value for money if you enjoy good food and wine.
