Chapel Hill Winery
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. The Chapel Hill Winery Guest House on our estate is a chalet style home nestled in the vines with sweeping views through the Onkaparinga Gorge and to the Gulf St Vincent. There is a bathroom for each of the three queen bedrooms as well as a separate powder room. The lounge has a giant bay window that takes in the spectacular views plus gorgeous stone walls and timber panelling, an open fireplace and multiple entertainment options. All this is completed by a fully equipped kitchen and dining room. Outside you will find a BBQ, chairs and tables to take in the view and enjoy the sunset. You will see kangaroos by the dozen as well as some of the spectacular bird life that resides in and over the Gorge. There are world class wine experiences within walking distance and some of South Australia’s best restaurants are only a short drive away. The accommodation rate includes locally sourced breakfast provisions as well as tea and coffee and a bottle or wine or two!
