Country kitchen or fine pairing?

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!

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
