Friends are so inspirational. They send you thoughtful messages just when you need them most. A great example is our friend Baptiste Quinard from Burgundy. For the longest time we’ve been discussing the development of our Tasting Room space. Then, when we hit an all-time low with the pandemic at the beginning of January this year, we received a most precious gift from Baptiste in the form of unique and innovative ideas for an environmentally positive space. I’m delighted to say that Baptiste’s magnificent plans are now a work in progress.
Serving your wine in the ‘correct’ glassware is as important as choosing the right wine for the occasion and serving it at the right temperature. So much of the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of a wine can be affected by the glass. That’s why we at Creation have invested in the Riedel Vinum collection of varietal-specific, cold-cut clear crystal glasses to showcase our wines.
There can be but a few places on earth where the natural partnership of wine and food is embraced more inventively than here at Creation! The latest in our ever-evolving repertoire is The Creation Aromatic Winter Experience which, aimed at heightening your sense of taste and smell, promises to be yet another unique pairing adventure. Our sense of smell plays a vital role in determining our mood and memory, and our new menu sets out to take you on a culinary journey of wellbeing by highlighting aroma whilst stimulating all your senses.
At Creation, Pinot Noir is traditionally the first to be harvested and a couple of weeks ago we reported on this year’s great quality, with Cellarmaster JC Martin saying: “The Pinot grapes ripened slowly, evenly and fully, resulting in attractive fruit flavours balanced by crisp acidity to add to the freshness of the wines.”
