Chalk Hill

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

The growth of Chalk Hill has accelerated after passing from parents John and Diana Harvey to grapegrowing sons Jock and Tom. Both are heavily involved in wine industry affairs. Further acquisitions mean the vineyards now span each district of McLaren Vale, planted to shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, grenache, chardonnay and barbera. The Alpha Crucis series is especially praiseworthy. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Shiraz, Grenache, Fiano, Vermentino, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Montepulciano and Nero d'Avola.

Cellar Door


Wine tells a story of the place we live. It shows the climate over the growing season, the soil in which it was grown, and the way the grapes have been tended to from the vineyard to the bottle. - John Harvey. Our cellar door is nestled in heart of McLaren Vale and our organic Chalk Hill Vineyard. Our views stretch from the Pt Willunga seaside to the Mt Lofty Ranges. Our cellar door is the perfect setting for a relaxed glass of wine on the sprawling lawns, or to be guided through a hosted tasting experience in our wine or Alpha Crucis Lounge.

Bookings for our tasting flights are recommended for weekends, not essential for during the week.
