Chapel Hill Wines

Glimpse of the Wines

Chapel Hill Winery in McLaren Vale was built on the site of the Seaview Chapel and school house. The 1865 ironstone Chapel still proudly stands today and is an integral feature of the tasting room. Planting of the vineyard commenced in 1972 and the first vintage was in 1975. Perched on the edge of the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge, shallow rocky soils are a feature with sweeping views back over McLaren Vale and Gulf St Vincent.

Down the winery

Named after the iconic ironstone chapel built in 1865 in McLaren Vale as a place of worship, school and gathering, the sociability long continues at Chapel Hill in its current role as a winery. Chapel Hill first flourished as a winery over a century later thanks to pioneering winemaker Pam Dunsford – the first female graduate of the acclaimed winemaking course at Roseworthy. Pam’s work led to many awards for Chapel Hill with many of those great wines from the 1990s still drinking beautifully today.

These old, low yielding vines result in small berries, thick skins and open bunches which deliver bright fruit flavours and an invigorating rustic savoury texture.
