Our editorial team is going to Creation Wines for a food and wine pairing next month. Tell us this doesn’t look like heaven on a plate?
If you’re in Cape Town, or are planning to go there soon, and you have a weakness for eating and drinking well, and you love a pretty drive through the winelands in winter, then this deal has your name on it.
What’s in for you? All of the above, and all of what’s below.
Two mixed cases of Creation Wines and a food and wine pairing session for four of you. (Your friends will love you.) Picture this: four sensational entree-size dishes paired with four unbelievable Creation wines.
The food-wine pairing sessions at Creation are sensational and are making their mark on the lips of wine lovers and foodies from Hermanus to Llandudno and in other far flung corners of the world. They’re also becoming famous for more unusual pairings, like wine and chocolate.
About the people you’ll meet there: the passionate owners of this stylish estate are Carolyn and JC (Jean-Claude) Martin, a successful Swiss viticulturalist and winemaker who joined the famous winery Grillette in the winelands of Neuchâtel where he clocked up experience and eventually became an owner.
They’ve have had a long love affair with wine. Carolyn is the daughter of acclaimed Cape winemaker, Walter Finlayson. After JC had visited the Cape winelands several times, cupid stepped in 1999 they married. In 2002, they hit on the idea of owning a piece of land against the Babylon Toren mountain, deep in blue crane and vine territory. So they dived right in, bought their little piece of heaven and planted 22 hectares of exceptional varietals. Inspired by the results of their first harvest, they commissioned the building of the high tech custom-designed winery fitted with everything of the best. The rest, as they say, is history.
To enter, post your comments below. Tell us…how badly do you want this, hmm? … and who will you take with you?
