Chapel Hill Wine Events

Our 50th vintage celebrations

3 cities. 3 events.

In 2024, Chapel Hill reached the incredible milestone of 50 vintages.

Those 50 years have been filled with stories of innovation, restoration and the courage and passion of truly dedicated people.

To celebrate we’re inviting you to where it all began, the Chapel Hill McLaren Vale estate.

With Chief Winemaker Michael Fragos at the helm along with Senior Viticulturist Rachel Steer, this event promises to be one to remember.

You will be among the first to taste the 2021 Icon wines including the Vicar and our Single Vineyard flagships. In addition, we will introduce you to the newest member of our Icon wine range, the Devil Shiraz. The Devil is destined to become a benchmark for McLaren Vale Shiraz and we are delighted to unveil it for the first time.

Lunch tickets include a masterclass tasting, House Block tour (home of The Devil) and 3 course lunch from the Salopian Inn team. With Michael being who he is, there is sure to be a museum or barrel tasting snuck in there, too.

For those wanting to really mark this occasion in style, we’re opening up our guest suites at The Retreat just for this event. Choose one night or two to indulge in a spectacular weekend and wake up amongst the vines, but hurry, only 7 accommodation packages are available.

Of course, we know not everyone can travel, so after last year’s success, we’re coming back to Sydney and Melbourne, too.

Fun, interactive and hosted by Michael Fragos, our Evening Cellar Door sessions will take you through 4 brackets, one each for the new releases. Each wine will be accompanied by museum or barrel samples of future vintages, smuggled out of the winery just for this event.

We can’t wait to share our history, present and exciting future with you.
