With consistently award-winning wines and innovative terroir focused cuisine, I literally got to taste a little piece of this paradise with the winemaker Stuart Botha and award-winning chef Richard Carstens in a food and wine pairing extravaganza

Cheetah outreach is one facility that tops the ethical scale and has the true wellbeing and conservation of these majestic cats at the core of its foundation and philosophy. The Cheetah Outreach project is ‘genuine’ ecotourism personified. We can all do our bit and there has never been a more important time to get involved to help stop the needless eradication of animals from our planet.
Creation takes the food and wine paring at to another level. The experience at this vineyard is a mind-blowing flavour sensation, and the culinary innovation and imagination is nothing short of genius. The quality of ingredients reflects the quality of the grapes that are used in the winemaking process. This is a unique wine and dine experience that can only be found in the Cape winelands and in my opinion Creation should become a landmark for South Africa.
It is peak season in Cape Town which means the popular beaches can become extremely crowded.

If you enjoy wine as much as I do then you will have even more reasons to be impressed by Cape Town. The ‘Mother City” and winner of the Telegraph ‘Best City in the World’ award 2017 is the largest winemaking region in South Africa and dates back to 1659. These vineyards have been incredibly influential in fuelling my passion for wine. Each one is unique producing wines that are celebrated the world over.
