The Vintner’s Daughter was established by husband and wife team, Stephanie Helm and Benjamin Osborne, in 2014 after they purchased a small winery and vineyard at Murrumbateman in the Canberra Cool Climate Wine District. The property is not far from where Stephanie grew up learning to make wine from her winemaker and vintner father, Ken Helm, at Helm Wines.
With vines dating back to 1978 and situated next to some of Murrumbateman’s most renowned vineyards the site was perfect for Stephanie and Benjamin to pursue their dream of creating their own unique style of wines. Together they control the entire process from vine to glass.
At the Vintner’s Daughter Stephanie and Ben are focusing on creating unique small batch wines with true varietal and regional character. They are producing some of the flagship varieties of the Canberra District, for example Riesling and Shiraz but are also concentrating on varieties that are not as common to the district: Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer.
Stephanie and Ben have been delighted with the success of their early vintages and opened a cellar door on the property in 2016 for weekend tastings and sales.
