Delightful, Diverse De Hoop

To put the delicious and diverse offerings of De Hoop in a wider perspective, imagine the sugar-sand beaches of Zanzibar and the ice-blue waters of the Maldives just a few minutes away from Sabi Sabi and Namibian sand dune bliss. Mind-boggling proximity of such diverse biospheres. This biodiversity is part of the mind-blowing magic of De Hoop Collection.

De Hoop is perfect for unstuffy rest and recreation that packs plenty of alluring luxury. Read my De Hoop Nature Reserve article here.

Always Something New From Creation Wines

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.

Riedel glassware is internationally recognised as the ideal stemware for wine appreciation. Their custom-designed glasses transfer the wine straight onto your palate, ensuring that none of the flavours end up behind a speed bump on the rim of the glass.

Here are but a few tips:
