THE HELEN & JOEY STORY

ABOUT US

Helen and Joey Estate is located in the prestigious Yarra Valley, just 45 km north east of Melbourne.  The cool continental climate, paired with substantial average rainfall provide excellent grape growing conditions. The Fernando Vineyard on Spring Lane in Gruyere was purchased in 2010 by Helen and Joey.  Since that time much passion, hard work and expertise has gone in to producing premium fruit of all the varieties planted across this stunning 200 acre farm.

OUR LOGO

The unicorn is a mythical creature which has been written about in history across many cultures for thousands of years. Accusations of real sightings have been made many times, only in reality, the sightings were other animals; perhaps seen in the mist from afar, an antelope with only one antler, a stunning white horse disappearing into the forrest.
The unicorn, like wine, is an enigma; it is ambiguous, often puzzling, stunningly beautiful, subjective and like the Unicorn displays all things that we admire;
Strength, Power and Elegance
