COOKING SCHOOL - CHAPEL HILL RETREAT
McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia

Chapel Hill owns and operates 44 hectares of vineyards and purchases fruit from a select group of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills vignerons. In 2003 the company opened The Retreat – a small venue showcasing the very best of McLaren Vale regional food, wine and accommodation experiences. Situated just 45 minutes from Adelaide CBD, The Retreat accommodates groups of 8-50 people, depending on whether you are requiring stand up or sit down functions, or cooking class facilities. Cooking classes are held throughout the year by arrangement for private and group bookings.
