French term or phrase: ces créateurs qui chérissent ces biens de la nature
Nous sommes des investisseurs à long terme qui plaçons vos avoirs dans les meilleurs vins du monde, ceux qui sont produits en petites quantités et que tout le monde veut acquérir pour les boire. Ce n’est rien d’autre que la qualité et la rareté qui font monter les prix progressivement et cela même en période de crise.

Tous comme ces créateurs qui chérissent ces biens de la nature, la vocation de XXXXXX est de soutenir ce marché, de conserver précieusement ces vins fins et rares et de ne s’en défaire que lorsque les précieux flacons seront à maturité.

XXXXX is an investment fund which invests in fine wines rather than stocks and shares.

I can see that they cherish the bottles of wine like gifts of nature, but do not really see how "créateurs" fits in...
Any interpretations welcome.

Explanation:
Or possibly, "...nature's wealth and resources." Granted, this is a loose translation. Probably, someone will improve upon it.

BTW, I think "tous" may be a typo, but then I keep learning that my French is not as strong as it might be... so I'll leave further commentary on that to others.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for this, I guess the "cherishing of nature's bounty" is the only similarity between the fund managers and the "créateurs" - I still find it an odd sentence.

agree  AllegroTrans: are vintners really "artists?" - it's a tad fanciful, although I don't mind calling them creative; "artisans" would work well and I really like the rest of your suggestion// thank you and santé!
