creation wines chefs table

Grant Back, a pilot, and one of our local Foodbarn regulars was flying guests to the Creation Wine Farm and was so taken with this place, he connected us with the farm, one thing led to another and the date for this Chefs table was set.

The first thing we do is taste the wine and very quickly, Cheffy established these delicious wines are very food friendly which makes them very easy to pair. Something else that he noticed was the reds have amazing ageing potential, so after a conversation with JC, the winemaker, a 2010 Shiraz and 2013 Pinot Noir were added to the mix. These wines are an amazing expression of the Hemel-en-Aarde valley and Cheffy’s menu is going to take us through another one of those magical Friday afternoons in the Foodbarn.
