Helen’s Hill

Helen’s Hill is a collaborative partnership between the Nalder and McIntosh families. In 1997, after enjoying successful careers in other professions, venture partners Robyn and Andrew McIntosh, Allan Nalder and Lewis and Roma Nalder came together with a joint goal of producing outstanding wines from one of Australia’s top cool climate wine regions, the Yarra Valley. The ethos of the Helen’s Hill team has always been to produce wines of provenance that are true to region and site. Helen’s Hill and the Ingram Road label wines, produced from a selection of single vineyard, contain a range of wines that are classically cool climate with emphasis on creating balanced, elegant wines, specialising in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. All of their wines display distinct features from the undulating site where their Coldstream vineyard is located.
