12 Ways to meet Creation Online
Established in 2002, Creation has earned a proud reputation, not only for our distinctive, terroir-reflective wines, but also for our constant innovation. And this includes the creative use of interactive media.
“New media optimization has created exciting opportunities: for instance, if you’re sitting in Hong Kong enjoying a glass of Creation wine, you are able to use your smartphone to download video tasting notes and clips of the farm from QR barcodes on the bottle,” says co-owner and marketing director, Carolyn Martin.
Apart from our WEBSITE Creation is presently also active on the following platforms:
Through Facebook we establish one on one contact with our fans, communicating important information such as harvest updates, upcoming events, promotions and special offers, and also eliciting their valued feedback.

Our YouTube channel has been rebranded and relaunched as Creation TV. This allows us to distribute informative, innovative online video material such as tasting tutorials, wine and food tastings, press snippets as well as user generated video content.
