Always confident that my clients will receive friendly and welcoming service. The vista from the deck is amazing and the tastings are always attentive and informative. I’ve never had to ask for anything, Sarah and the team are nailing it!

Mel was our host for our wine tasting. It was an absolute pleasure being guided thru the tasting by Mel. She is extremely knowledgeable, engaging & an absolute asset to the Estate. Our experience was thoroughly enjoyable- we will definitely be back!! 🤗😉. We have already recommended to friends to add a visit & tasting at Helen & Joey Estate to their Yarra Valley must do list!

Everything was just amazing. Loved all the wines i got to taste. Specially loves inara white wine and frizz rose. Amazing loaction and view. Very nice ambiance. I liked the dairy as well but i personally feel that more options can be added to dairy along with more snacks.

Loved my day at Helen and Joey Estate. The breathtaking views, luxury service and relaxing atmosphere were faultless. The wine - Nectar of the Gods made even better at this estate. Only thing that could have been improved would have been inclusion of fresh fruit or fresh bread (added to the cheeseboard) to eat with the wine. Its the only reason I switched to coffee after the tasting. Thank-you all for a one stop amazing afternoon :)

Came by over Labour Day weekend and loved it! Great atmosphere and beautiful scenery. The unicorn is a fun and playful touch that mirrors their wines. Wines were yummy - didn't get enough time to have charcuterie but keen to get it next time, looked divine!

My girlfriend and I popped in for a glass of wine and a small bite to eat while on a day trip in the Yarra Valley. We were greeted warmly, given several options for drinks and food, and settled on a mixed platter of cheeses, meats and crackers, and two wines by the glass. Everything was delicious and the outdoor seating was beautiful - views, ambience and peace and quiet! We even saw a tractor drive past with freshly harvested grapes, and the farmer gave us a friendly wave. Highly recommended for those who like something individual and off the beaten track!

Relaxed atmosphere with a stunning view to take in while drinking delicious wine. Staff are always friendly. Only suggestion would be to have clearer information on the charcuterie selection so it’s not so rushed when choosing what to have in the platter. The food was perfection though and paired perfectly with the wine. Definitely my fave winery to stop at in the Yarra Valley.

Beautiful scenery, wine and service. Extensive wine tasting list that would suit everyone’s palate and price range. Myself and partner spent a few hours here ob our first visit to the Yarra Valley and would highly recommend it as a MUST on a list of things to do in the region.

Service is always great however definitely need more staff on the weekend as last 2 times have been extremely busy with groups and hence takes a while to get food/cheese platters
