Originally the Christian Bible Church for the local area then later also used as a parish school; the chapel closed in its centenary year (1965) and fell into disrepair until its restoration in the 1970’s by Adelaide Professor, Tom Nelson. Tom commenced the establishment of a winery and the Chapel Hill brand in 1973 and six years later the site was purchased by a partnership of the Sellick and Gerrard families who enjoyed considerable success in developing the Chapel Hill wines. Gerrard bought out the Sellick family in the 80’s. A new winery was constructed in 1994 with a capacity of 1000 tonnes the equivalent of around 80,000 cases of wine. In 2000 Chapel Hill was acquired by the Swiss based family of Thomas Schmidheiny. Chapel Hill owns and operates 44 hectares of vineyards and purchases fruit from a select group of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills vignerons. Since 2006 there have been a number of significant changes within the business. Changes to vineyards, wine styles, packaging and personnel have significantly contributed to a new look Chapel Hill that is totally dedicated to producing the best possible quality range of wines that articulate the stylistic expression the region.

The 2006 McLaren Vale Shiraz displays hedonistic blueberry, pimento, liquorice and roasted almond flavors. The harmonious intergration and balance of these fruit flavors with the gently textured oak, is further enchanced by the defiantly persistent mouth filling tannin structure.McLaren Vale is widely recognized as one of the worlds leading Shiraz producing regions because it produces fruit with unique characters and flavours. McLaren Vale Shiraz is typically deep garnet red in colour with an enormously rich mouthfilling palate that boasts style, structure and substance. Chapel Hill consistently produces a high quality Shiraz that epitomises the region.100% Shiraz, Matured 19 months in 300L hogsheads 75% French, 25% American, 36% new 33% second use, 31% third use.
