Ataraxia Wines cover
Mission To craft a small range of highly individual wines that reflect the ancient soils on which the grapes are grown.
Description Ataraxia was founded in 2004 by husband and wife team, Kevin and Hanli Grant, in partnership with a few friends, when they purchased 50 hectares of prime vineyard land behind the small coastal village of Hermanus. The landscape in which Ataraxia is situated is unique, lying as it does on the most elevated section of the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Nestled on this commanding rise beneath the soaring BabylonsToren mountain range, our vineyards are planted on some of the most spectacular terroirs South Africa has to offer. It is a place where wines of incredible finesse, balance and depth are crafted, that proudly hold their own in the international arena.
