Chapel Hill

The picturesque Chapel Hill vineyards stretch across the historic Seaview sub region of McLaren Vale. The area was first settled soon after the colony of South Australia was proclaimed in 1836. During the 1850s, the landscape of the region transformed from wheat growing, grazing and mixed farming to orcharding and vineyards. A colonial wine industry gathered steam in the 1860s with growing exports to England, India, New Zealand and other corners of the Empire. This eJournal charts the rise of Chapel Hill and recent vintages of The Chosen Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
