Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa

Greek for “a serene state of mind, free from worry and preoccupation”, Ataraxia lives up to the hype. Aptly called The Skyfields, Ataraxia Wines is perfectly positioned on a commanding rise in the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde wine-growing area. Hemel-en-Aarde is Afrikaans for “heaven and earth” and the claim is justified. The estate sits on a particularly heavenly stretch of land beneath a lofty peak of the Babylon’s Tower mountain range. In addition to its unrelenting beauty, Ataraxia is home to some of the most spectacular terroirs South Africa has to offer.

Just a short distance from the coastal village of Hermanus, a picture-perfect drive brings you to the most elevated part of these winelands. Here you can experience jaw-dropping vineyard, valley and mountain views: all from their chapel-like Wine Lounge.

From the beginning their soils have dictated which grape cultivars they plant. These are important vehicles to express their terroir and ultimately the wines you have come to enjoy. Their wines are a pure expression of the soil in which they grow. Currently, they have a total of twelve hectares under vine with a further twelve planned for the future.
