2005 was the maiden vintage for Ataraxia, which produces four wines from this unique terroir - Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a red blend called Serenity. All fully express the terroir from which they are born and have gone on to receive international acclaim.
“It has been a long time coming and if fear were the basis on which decisions were made, then Ataraxia would never have been born.” Kevin Grant, Wine Maker & Owner
After successive vintages where Kevin worked tirelessly to help establish the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley at the forefront of quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir production in South Africa, he decided that it was time for him to set out on his own. After months of searching, soil testing and detailed analysis of potential sites, Kevin found the perfect 47-hectare plot, which he bought together with his wife Hanil and a group of friends.
