About Ataraxia Wines
Hemel-en-Aarde is Afrikaans for “heaven and earth” and the claim is justified. Ataraxia estate sits on a particularly heavenly stretch of land beneath a lofty peak of the Babylon’s Tower mountain range near Hermanus. In addition to its unrelenting beauty, Ataraxia is home to some of the most spectacular terroirs South Africa has to offer.
In 2004, The Skyfields Farm was visioned into the Ataraxia wine label when husband and wife, Kevin and Hanli Grant and a few friends purchased this 47-hectare prime vineyard property. Former Zoologist Kevin was born in Blantyre, Malawi. Always drawn to winemaking, he went on to complete a Diploma in Cellar Technology at Elsenburg Agricultural College. Ataraxia is a deeply personal project for him and he calls himself a “soil farmer”.
