Creation is a wine estate in the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) valley. On a scorching day, when the heat hangs heavy along the Hermanus Wine Route, the Creation tasting room is a cool oasis overlooking a still dam, budding vineyards, and mountains that link the earth to the skies. Gentle music wafts through the doors and the full bloom garden appears to hum with joy as the weekend crowd fills the outside tables, oohing and aahing at the glorious scene.
