Overview

Raise your glass to a palate-pleasing experience at Helm Wines, one of the leading wineries in the Canberra district. Established by Ken and Judith Helm in 1973, Helm Wines is known for producing award-winning Rieslings and Cabernet Sauvignons.

The winery, which has been given a 5 star rating by James Halliday, is a must-visit for all budding and experienced wine connoisseurs.

Helm Wines tasting room is the 1888 Toual Public School House which is listed by the National Trust and was the inspiration for the school bell featured on our label. It was once used for meetings of the Temperance League, where locals signed the pledge against alcohol.

Located approximately 30 kilometres north of Canberra, the rural setting is the perfect backdrop for tasting quality wines and learning about the art of wine making.

Bookings required for groups.
