We arrived with our UK friends who enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately Ken Helm was not on show on the day so missed out on the knowledgable information and personal touch of a tour with Ken. Wines remain the same, reputable and reliable.

This is such a cute little tasting house - the winery tasting room is in an old school classroom, still with lots of the original fittings and accessories (including an ancient cash register machine!). However that is just an added aesthetic bonus, as let's be...More

Helm Wines is an exceptional wine experience. The cellar door is set in the historic school building over a century old with many historic artifacts around the grounds. The walls abound with photographic evidence of the joy that Helm's wines bring to intrepid travellers. Ken...More
