South African wines are some of the best in the world. And many of the best South African wines come from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley outside of Hermanus. Hemel-en-Aarde means “heaven on earth” in Afrikaans and we can attest to the fact that this is not an embellishment. We visited Creation Wines to taste the distinctively elegant wines that come from the terroir of heaven on earth.
Long before the days of Land Rovers with padded seats, Africa was experienced on foot. Men would hike for days or weeks deep into “The Bush” for close encounters with fearsome beasts. The animals of the Big Five received that honor because they were the most dangerous to hunt on foot. Today, by leaving the safety of the vehicle and experiencing Africa on foot, we can replicate some of that experience and appreciate the bush the way it was meant to be – up close and personal, with elements of thrill and danger.
