The World’s Best Vineyards is an international platform in which professional judges from all over the world vote for the best vineyards in their countries. The criteria are many but the main thrust is what sort of experience a visitor will have and what the quality of the wines is. Competition is fierce to be included in the list and winning a special category is a big deal indeed. This year has seen Creation in the Hemel en Aarde Valley being voted No 10 Best in the World and Best in Africa, a huge tribute to the work this dynamic couple have put into making their dream come true.
Knowing Carolyn (originally a Finlayson) it is probably still—and always will be—a work in progress.
She and her husband winemaker extraordinaire J C Martin, who hails from Switzerland, modestly pay tribute to the staff who are all important in making things happen . Carolyn says for all of them “This global award is not just for Creation but for all our stakeholders.”
If you don’t know Creation (why not?) and its award winning wines, do fire up the motor and get yourself there for a fabulous meal, spectacular views and homely friendliness that makes it all an absolute pleasure. Congratulations to them.
