Creation Wines

in Sip & Bite
In recent years I have started taking an interest in wine, enjoying wine tastings and especially food and wine pairings.

Myself and my best friend Katherine was in Hemel-En-Aarde Valley last month for a wedding and took this opportunity to explore some of the amazing wine estates they have up there.

The first one we went to visit is already so well know to everyone in the Western Cape, it’s reputation for excellence far preceding it.

The dirt road drive to the Creation Wines estate is simply beautiful, winelands all around as you go up and over rolling hills. The view from the estate as you can image is also pretty spectacular.

We booked for their food and canapes pairing for R125. The menu that was selected for us combined the most interesting of flavours: pineapple and basil cazpacho, Asian five spice pulled pork, corn ginger and apricot spring rolls and duck confit with Malay aioli. My favourites wines were the Chardonnay and the Syrah Grenache.

If you ever find yourself in this beautiful part of our country, please don’t give this place a miss!
