What would your perfect country lunch be? An informal farmhouse kitchen or an eight-course pairing experience?
In the Hemel en Aarde Valley between Hermanus and Caledon, South Africa, you don't need to choose: hidden away in the amazingly fertile Hemel en Aarde valley is a hidden-away farmstead offering a whole lunch-into-lazy afternoon experience.
Somehow, the combination of Swiss and South African is just pure dynamite and not as uncommon as you might think! Taking the pioneering, risk-taking and ubuntu spirit of Carolyn, the Saffer component and the meticulous, painstaking and perfectionist nature of JC, the Swiss element, and you have a couple capable of anything.
.Creation has built from scratch two ECD centres and raised vast sums at wine auctions for local education endeavours, whilst managing to create a diverse range of award-winning wines, all on the back of only 40ha of vineyard in a remote part of the country. One of the most special things about creation is the refreshing approach to their tasting room: you can have non-alcoholic pairings, brunch pairings and even kids tastings!
