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.
