For those who enjoy good food, wine and accommodation to match, The Retreat at Chapel Hill Winery in South Australia's scenic McLaren Vale wine region also shares your passion. While the winery dates back to 1976 when the first wines were produced in a small Methodist church, today up to 20 guests can now stay in a small luxury retreat overlooking the vineyard. Just 45 minutes from the centre of Adelaide, the accommodation includes a separate three-bedroom guest house (ideal for group getaways) with open fireplace and stunning views of the Onkaparinga Gorge to the sea. Packages offer the ultimate indulgences including private cellar door tastings and chef prepared dinners with waiter service. Over a weekend guests can also learn first-hand the art of good cooking using the best local produce under the expert direction of The Retreat's new executive chef, Rebecca Stubbs (2008 South Australian Lexus Young Chef of the Year). Meals are matched to the best wines in the Chapel Hill range.
